Play episode

I love Dr. Gabrielle Lyon because she has a unique practice that focuses on muscle-centric medicine. She fights protein food shaming with research-backed science on how protein intake supports fat loss and prevents sarcopenia, and she explains how muscles and proteins play a role in decreasing inflammation and how protein deficiency can manifest in disease.

Dr. Lyon received her doctorate in osteopathic medicine from the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in family medicine. She earned her undergraduate degree in human nutrition from the University of Illinois, where she studied vitamin and mineral metabolism, chronic disease prevention and management, and the physiological effects of diet composition.

You will learn about...

  • What protein is and why we need it
  • The benefits of muscle mass
  • How to optimize muscle tissue
  • Muscle as a disposal place for glucose
  • A day in the life of Dr. Lyon
  • Signs of protein deficiency
  • Optimal times for workout or protein intake
