In this week’s episode of the Discover Strength Podcast, I had the pleasure of being joined by Dr. Stuart Phillips.
Dr. Phillips is a senior lecturer at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. He is widely regarded as one of the preeminent researchers in the world on protein. While the topic of protein and how it affects our bodies can be very wide ranging, we tried to keep this episode down to the fundamentals.
– What is protein?
– Why do we need it?
– How do we use it?
– And finally can we use resistance exercise to help make the most of the protein we take in?
Our clients constantly hear us harp on the importance of protein, and I think this weeks episode will be an excellent reminder on the actual purpose of protein and why it’s so important to our bodies, and our health.
