Skeletal muscle is a widely overlooked part of our metabolic health.
From how well we control glucose and insulin to how well we age, skeletal muscle regulates many processes. One of the most important factors for how much muscle we create and retain is our protein intake, which has become a divisive topic in the nutrition world and one still hotly debated in some dietary camps.
Today’s guest on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, is the perfect person to sort through the facts on the powers of skeletal muscle and how to consume protein for optimal impact.
Dr. Lyon is a Washington University fellowship-trained physician in Nutritional Science and Geriatrics and is board certified in Family Medicine. She is the founder of the Institute for Muscle Centric-Medicine™ and has a private practice that services leaders, innovators, mavericks, and executives in a number of fields. In addition, Dr. Lyon also works closely with special-operations military personnel. Her goal is to change the paradigm of medicine from obesity-focused to muscle-centric and change the way we think about health and medicine with high scientific integrity.
