Essential amino acids? High protein diets? BCAAs? What the frak? The simple truth is that the topic of protein is every bit as confusing as the Middle East Peace Process and DC Comics Multiverse continuity.
But don’t worry, My fellow nutrition nerd Steve Edwards and I are here to help. Yesterday we did a “meaty” chat all about this fascinating macronutrient, covering everything from how high-protein diets work (and don’t work), to vegetarian protein sources, to the straight dope on amino acid sports supplements like BCAAs, glutamine, and tyrosine.
And, as a bonus, we’re kinda funny, so enjoy the show. If we missed anything, drop me a line with your questions.
