When I think about getting into great shape, I think about the need to eat right and workout as the only long term solution.
Today we’re going to be looking at some of the most popular diets and how they impact your ability to lose fat; we’re also going to be talking about the role of protein in helping you achieve your goals.
The problem is that there’s so much conflicting information out there about nutrition, diets, and how it impacts fat loss and building muscle.
When it comes to cutting through all of the noise around dieting and nutrition, few experts are as credible as my guest today.
He’s not only a PhD in nutritional sciences and an expert in protein synthesis, he’s also the author of numerous published scientific studies on protein.
And as if that wasn’t enough, he’s also a champion power lifter who finished first at the 2022 IPF World Masters Powerlifting Championships
and has set world records.
This is a guy that not only relies on facts and research, he also applies it to his own training and the thousands of clients he trains through his company Biolayne.
