What is (Dietary) Protein Anyway? w/ Eric Helms, PhD

What is (Dietary) Protein Anyway? w/ Eric Helms, PhD

We’re kicking this new show off by asking seemingly basic questions about diet and nutrition. First up, “What is (dietary) protein anyway?”

After a quick catch up session, we talk through the “facts” of what we think we know about this question – which, of course raises even more questions like…

How much protein do you really need?

What’s a complete protein?

How many essential amino acids are there?

Then, we bring in Eric Helms, PhD. to give us the low down.

Eric has a BS in fitness and wellness, an MS in exercise science, a second masters in sports nutrition, a PhD in strength and conditioning, and is a research fellow for AUT at the Sports Performance Research Institute New Zealand.

Our ideas about the question start around 10:10.

Eric runs down the facts starting at around 20:25.

Huge thanks to Eric for being our expert. You can find him at 3DMuscleJourney.com and on Instagram: @helms3dmj
