To lose fat, gain muscle, and boost your metabolism after 50, you need to understand the benefits of protein. Learn how much protein you need to preserve muscle when losing weight. 

In this episode, you will learn why getting enough protein is so important not only for weight loss but also maintaining your muscle and bone health to prevent falls and fractures as you age. I’ll also give you information to determine how much protein you should be getting in a day and at each meal.
