Protein expert & research scientist, Prof. Stuart Phillips, is today's guest interview. Professor Phillips shares with us the basics of daily protein requirement that we all need to eat for optimal human health. He helps to explain how much protein we need to eat to help minimise the loss of muscle as we age, called sarcopenia, which is especially important for the elderly. We also go into busting the myths like protein causes kidney damage or makes you too acidic. We then find out about some of the mistakes Prof Phillips sees when people eat a keto or low carb diet to lose weight and don't eat enough protein so they loss muscle weight and not just excess body fat.
