Animal protein, according to Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, is the key to
preventing disease and promoting longevity. Plant protein can be
one's alternative choice but it may be missing the mark for you in
terms of total wellness potential. And what about body composition,
chronic disease and illness? The common conception is that obesity
is the root cause of most diseases. The reality is we don’t have a
body fat problem, we’re just under-muscled… That’s the concept that
drives the work of this week’s guest.
Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, DO is a physician who founded the concept
and the Institute of Muscle Centric Medicine®.
In this discussion, Chase and Dr. Gabrielle Lyon have a
transparent conversation about the history of food and nutritional
science, the power of Muscle Centric Medicine®, and the
non-negotiable science behind controversial health topics,
including protein and RDAs. This is an info-packed episode that
will either leave you speechless or running to share the news with
your loved ones!
