Protein leverage with Professors Raubenheimer and Simpson — Diet Doctor Podcast
Is our biological need for protein driving us to overeat and become obese? Professors Raubenheimer and Simpson demonstrate through their research that animals, including humans, are hardwired to eat protein and will overeat calories to get enough protein, even to the point of poor metabolic outcomes like obesity and diabetes.
Understanding the drive for protein embedded in our biology is the first step in addressing obesity.
