Your protein intake could be the reason you're not making the kind of progress you want. If you've tuned into any of the Flipping 50 protein month content then you do have an idea about your protein needs. In case you missed it though, I've saved some of the best content for last. 

My guest is a podcast favorite when it comes to talking about your protein.

Questions we answer in this podcast:

There’s some controversy about eating animal protein and cancer - what do you say to the Flipping 50 listener who asked that?

Let’s review for listeners the difference between essential amino acids and Branch chain amino acids…

What about taking BCAA supplements? Women in the audience may be trying to get their protein in, and not be satisfying their goal. May be eating more plant than animal protein and not combining carefully calculated… and if either are true and a woman is struggling to gain lean muscle mass or to improve body composition… does your answer change for either one of those situations ?

What are your thoughts on intermittent fasting, protein consumption while doing IF, and for those women in midlife who are reducing intake to two meals a day basically -  brunch and early dinner ?

You’re at a favorite restaurant. You’re walking your talk. What does Dr Gabrielle Lyon order for dinner and why?
