Evidence-Based Recommendations to Optimize Nutrition and Workouts: 55

Alan Aragon is a nutrition researcher with 30 years worth of experience in the field. He relies on evidence-based information to publish a monthly research review as well as articles for magazines and scientific journals. He helps recreational and professional athletes with performance and nutrition.

Today’s discussion focuses on his recent paper about age-related anabolic resistance and how much protein we should consume daily. Spoiler alert, the current RDA guidelines are inadequate for optimal performance and muscle maintenance. Alan also discusses how protein intake can vary from person to person based on a multitude of factors.

This subject is near and dear to my heart because protein is something I have been very focused on in my work over the last two years!
