Today’s guest, athlete and muscle-health expert Gabrielle Lyon, DO, will add more substance and context to this narrative about muscle. Check out the show notes: http://highintensityhealth.com/201 Want coaching? Check out our Inner Circle: http://highintensityhealth.com/insider Gabrielle discusses how muscle is the body’s largest site for fatty acid oxidation (aka fat burning) and glucose disposal. (This is why bodybuilders can enjoy high-carb diets and still be lean.) Muscle is dubbed the organ of longevity for a reason—without it, you’re not burning much fat for fuel and are likely not aging well. This chat may help to clarify a few aspects about muscle, including: - Combating age-related muscle loss (aka anabolic resistance) - Intake of and types of protein to help build muscle and burn fat - Understanding mTOR and muscle growth (and potential links to cancer) Here are the key takeaways: 00:48 Muscle is the organ of longevity. The only way to keep muscle healthy is to lift weights. 01:51 Dr. Lyon’s focus is on muscle health, muscle protein synthesis, and optimizing body composition. 02:18 Ageing and Muscle Protein Synthesis: There are only two ways to stimulate muscle protein synthesis: exercise or diet. 02:43 You need the right amount of protein intake at the right times in the right amount to stimulate the lock and key effect. 03:12 Anabolic Resistance: mTOR is stimulated by leucine, an anabolic protein that is the driver for muscle health. It allows muscle to turn over and to be synthesized. 04:06 Muscle is an organ like the heart. It is the largest unit for glucose disposal and the largest site for fat oxidation. 04:26 Eat More Protein. As age, we need to eat more protein at once. We need around 50 grams at one time. 05:10 Anabolic Resistance: It is on the trajectory of sarcopenia and cachexia. 05:40 Quality of Protein Dictates Quality of Your Health 07:12 Animal-Based Proteins vs Plant-Based Proteins: It is based upon the amount of leucine. Vegan proteins are low in leucine. 08:19 Benefits of Methionine/Protein Restriction 10:50 Increase Protein on Rest Days, NOT Training Days 12:25 Optimal Range of Protein: Everyone should be consuming at least 30 grams of high quality protein 3 times ea
