Show Notes

Every superhero needs a super-villain, even in nutrition dogma. Pop science portrays protein as the hero nutritional macro, with carbs playing the bad guy. Research suggests protein may be the real villain.

 

There’s a difference between conclusions, based on research, and dogma

  • Protein has become the nutritional superhero.
  • Protein’s superhero status isn’t supported in research. In fact, research shows that protein may be the villain.
  • The low fat, lower protein diet is emerging as the true superhero for weight loss and overall health.
  • Animal protein correlates to weight gain.
  • A 2017 study concluded “the claim that consumption of dietary BCAAs stimulates muscle protein synthesis or produces an anabolic response in human subjects is unwarranted.”
  • Protein is being marketed as something needing in greater and greater amounts. Now, even nightclubs offer drinks with protein added.
  • The (total/optimal) RDA for protein in the U.S. is set at 56 grams for men, and 46 grams for women.
  • According to bariatric surgeon Garth Davis, MD (whose practice centers on treatment of the severely obese, and author of Proteinaholic) “in virtually every study, animal protein is correlated with weight gain… People whose diets are high in animal protein have significantly higher rates of chronic diseases: hypertension, cancer, diabetes, heart disease.”
  • “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
    –Albert Einstein
