Today’s ep is a rewind back to episode 1, where we went looking for some basic facts about protein. We were joined by the always awesome Eric Helms!

Original show notes:

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
