    Fascinating hour long chat on protein. Not Diabetes specific but does discuss from the 20 mins mark.
    Covering: RDA, ketosis, IF, muscle loss, renal failure, age, menopause and after, animal v vegetable protein and much more. Enjoy.

    And of course too little protein in your diet can lead to Hypoalbuminemia which is not good.

    Thank you! I am currently cutting out some carbs and replacing with protein, firstly to feel fuller and secondly because my doctor recommended having more calcium (I'm adding in some high protein yoghurt), so I have been curious about this stuff. Very interesting show!

    Good timing:-

    Bah humbug. Eat the chicken and the egg. With a side of veg. I also liked the way they covered body builders, kidney failure and a spurious correlation with protein. Because all body builders were natural. Also liked the gelatin diet comment. Hadn't heard that one before :)

    As for eggs, I remember from when I was training just how many eggs the heavyweights would get through to get protein from the egg whites.
