Myth-Busting: Why High Protein Intake Isn't Unhealthy | PD Podcast Ep.72

Listen on

Episode notes

Today's episode is on a question that gets asked quite a bit—is a high protein diet unhealthy? Protein does not have stored reserves like fats and carbs. This is why adequate protein intake is so important. Listen in as Austin, Alex, and Sue dive into their own protein intake, protein distribution, and pitfalls of too much or too little, plus a funny story from Alex.

As always, it is our goal not only to supply you, the listener, with valuable insights on the topics or questions but also to plant some seeds for further research and thought. Without further ado, let's get into today's episode.
