I begin the next 4-part series of the show with a guest who needs little introduction within the fitness/nutrition industry: Dr. Stuart Phillips from McMaster University. Dr. Stuart has arguably done more research on protein and the intersection of exercise with its use than anyone else I know. We kick off the series with a primer of sorts and start building the foundation for the following three episodes together. In this episode we discuss why protein is important, considerations for dosages, the potential downsides to protein use, how animal and plant based proteins differ, amino acid profiles, leucine thresholds and why protein works for dieting. You won't want to miss any of these!
