with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon


Should we be eating less meat? Meat has been demonized for years, but Muscle-Centric Medicine practitioner Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is PRO-MEAT and recommends high-quality protein diets, supplements, and resistance training to optimize skeletal muscle. 

In this episode, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon shares how she believes that muscle is the organ of longevity (and may be the most underappreciated organ that we have), how best to lower cholesterol, the importance of amino acids, the amount of protein you should consume daily - and what that looks like on your plate.
