Newsflash! You can be eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly yet still be deficient in what science calls the "building blocks of life" – proteins and amino acids.  

Today, Angelo Keely joins me for an illuminating episode where we talk about the most important macronutrient of all and why your current diet could be providing you with incomplete blocks of it. Backed with science and an overwhelming passion for educating people, Angelo debunks popular myths about protein and lays out the best sources for life-enhancing amino acids. He also managed to simplify the complicated science behind muscle-protein synthesis and branched-chained amino acids (BCCA) while sharing protein-intake recommendations you probably haven’t heard from anywhere else!
