What is this talk about?

Muscle is the largest organ in the body, it is the metabolic currency and the organ of longevity. Yet we still focus on being overfat, obesity and adiposity rather than the solution which is skeletal muscle. As we age and move out of our 30’s, protein needs change as well as the skeletal tissue itself. There are specific strategies that must implemented to protect and optimize muscle. Dietary protein has long been the black sheep of the macronutrient family, yet it is arguably the most important macronutrient. The current RDA has us set up for failure and needs to reevaluated for longevity. If you want to be lean, decrease body fat, inflammation and have tried everything then this talk is for you.
