In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re talking about muscle, protein and the benefits of meat with a doctor who focuses on Muscle-Centric-Medicine™. Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is an osteopathic physician specializing in functional medicine. She says muscles function well beyond locomotion and aesthetics.
“Muscle is the organ of longevity and your survivability is directly related to the quality of your muscle tissue,” she says.
Dr. Lyon has made a career studying, training and optimizing muscle. She’s a former fitness model and nationally ranked fitness competitor. In her private practice in New York City, many of her patients are part of elite military special operations, such as Navy SEALS, Green Berets, Army Rangers and Canadian Assaulters.
Her core Muscle-Centric-Medicine™ philosophy centers on muscle as an endocrine organ and how it determines the way in which we age, our body composition, obesity, and insulin resistance. As an endocrine organ, she explains, muscle is your “metabolic currency.”
We talk about the Carnivore Diet, carbs, protein and fat ratios, and false plant-based narratives—and what those things mean for health and aging.
“Veganism in and of itself is what, 100 years old?,” says Dr. Lyon. “We simply weren't designed to do that as it relates to muscle tissue, as it relates to aging, and it's just not how we are biologically designed.”
“It's so interesting when you think about fat and you think about carbohydrates,” she says. “Some people will say fat is good for you. You've got other people that will say that it's not, and sugar. No one will argue that Twinkies are bad for you. But when it comes to dietary protein because it has a face, people make very emotional decisions and totally ignore the science.”
Listen on to find out much more about why protein matters for your muscles and the state of your health.
