Dr. David Usher, a family physician who specializes in weight loss and healthy eating, is back to talk about protein and meat. Dr. Usher covers why protein is so important for our bodies, the different kinds of protein our bodies need, and the best way to get protein in our diets. He also dispels some myths about common diet misconceptions about meat, animal fat, nuts, and even vegetables.

Top 3 Take-Aways:

  1. Apology to mothers, but the truth is, there’s nothing magical about vegetables.
  2. Be careful about nuts: calorie to protein ratio isn’t great, and a lot of the best nuts have lots of carbs!
  3. Total calorie consumption: 30% protein, 55-60% fat
