Protein Pacing Diet for Building Muscle With Paul Arciero, PhD

build muscle protein protein pacing Nov 22, 2023

Recently, I had the opportunity to have a fascinating discussion with renowned protein expert Paul Arciero, PhD on the revolutionary protein pacing diet.

While there’s no conclusive study, research suggests about 80% of people who lose weight don’t keep it off long term. One reason for this is yo-yo dieting and a slowed metabolism after weight loss. Two keys to prevent this slowing of metabolism is eating enough protein and adding resistance training to your workout routine while losing weight. 

In our conversation, Dr. Paul shared his compelling journey into the world of protein pacing, delving into its origins and the powerful impact it has had on his life. His personal story serves as a testament to the transformative potential of this approach.
