Skeletal muscle is a widely overlooked part of our metabolic health. 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.
My guest on today’s podcast, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, is the perfect person to sort through the facts about skeletal muscle and how to consume protein for optimal impact.
Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is board-certified in family medicine and completed a combined research and clinical fellowship in geriatrics and nutritional sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.
She completed her undergraduate training in nutritional sciences at the University of Illinois. Dr. Lyon is a subject-matter expert and educator in the practical application of protein types and levels for health, performance, aging, and disease prevention. She has continued to receive mentorship from Dr. Donald Layman, Ph.D., over the course of two decades to help bring protein metabolism and nutrition from the bench to the bedside.
