Proteins, carbs, and fats … most people understand what the last two are. Carbs are sugars, and fat is, well, fat. It's protein that’s so important to our diets, but so often misunderstood — by the general public, that is.Since the 1950s and 1960s, scientists have been measuring how protein affects our performance, how it supports and maintains the body’s structure, and how best to incorporate it into our diets. From big steaks to protein shakes, tofu to seitan, protein is more available now than ever before. With so many options, surely we’re getting enough protein? In today’s episode, Jonathan speaks with a leading nutritional researcher to find out.Christopher Gardner is a professor at Stanford University and a member of ZOE’s scientific advisory board. He’s pioneering the movement to redefine how we understand the quality of our protein intake.If you want to uncover the right foods for your body, head to joinzoe.com/podcast and get 10% off your personalized nutrition program.03:02 - Quickfire questions04:19 - What is protein?08:07 - Can our bodies make the proteins we need?08:37 - The mechanism for our bodies creating amino acids.09:33 - What is an essential amino acid?10:45 - Crazy study Stanford scientists did to find the Estimated Average Requirement of protein.15:24 - How much protein should we consume?18:15 - How much protein do we already consume?23:02 - Can our bodies store protein?24:02 - What happens to excess protein in our bodies?24:51 - Protein Scam Alert!25:28 - Stanford Study: Does the type of protein we consume affect physical performance?28:15 - Protein requirements for kids and pregnant women.31:05 - What is Amino Acid Distribution?33:03 - Are plants missing certain amino acids?33:47 - How is AAD like the game of Scrabble?38:30 - What is the healthiest source of protein?38:41 - Dr. Gardner’s case for changing the way we define “protein quality” in the US41:33 - Jonathan’s summary43:59 - Goodbyes 44:42 - Outro Episode transcripts are available here.Follow Chris: https://twitter.com/GardnerPhDStudies mentioned in this episode.Maximizing the intersection of human health and the health of the environment with regard to the amount and type of protein produced and consumed in the United StatesDiet for a Small Planet by Frances Moore LappéPerspective: The Public Health Case for Modernizing the Definition of Protein QualityFollow ZOE on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/zoe/Is there a nutrition topic you’d like us to cover?

Dr Russell used careless language in saying children seek attention at night. His choice of words plays to the idea that children manipulate us whereas they need and deserve reassurance. Evolution would have children sleeping with us. Along with modern changes in light levels and sleep patterns we have also moved away from instinctive co sleeping with small children. Suggesting sleep training is not that straightforward. As he says he is not a paediatrician. Is there any research into childrens sleep cycles that might be useful to consider.
Weeee! I have both allergies and intolerance! I was allergic since I was little, but when puberty kicked in, my allergy went away. It was then when I realized I couldn't digest lactose. 🙄 I still ate it and enjoyed dairy until after my second pregnancy when my dairy allergy started to come back. Now I have to avoid milk, but I miss cheese!😢 I would have been better off never losing my allergy! Ah well. It has been enough years now that I have forgotten what real cheese tastes like and vegan cheeses can fill that role to some extent.
I have to not have caffeine from about 1pm ish
Good afternoon. My friends called me for a walk, but I was busy writing a term paper, and they advised me this article https://newsdirect.com/news/6-best-coursework-writing-services-for-academic-excellence-843871952 , which tells about the many services for writing coursework. It helped me not to waste my time on it.) I think you may also find it helpful. Have a nice day!)

Please do an episode on acid reflux & GERD
love ZOE.listen to all podcasts and find them very imformative.LOVE.
Interesting podcast but the study was only done on middle-aged men which I was disappointed to hear near the end of the episode. Maybe clarify that "men" will benefit from this and not "people" before the study has been done on "people". For example, the keto diet has been show not to work very well for women, so please do not make broad statements without the science to back it up!
So, what exactly is the current thinking on butter? Sarah says ignore the labels on cheese. Do we ignore the ones on butter too?

You are giving completely the wrong message about highly processed, toxic oils as they are sold to us in supermarkets such as corn, sunflower, canola/rapeseed, soybean, safflower and vegetable oils... I don't mean cold-pressed, organic oils which shouldn't be heated, but there's plenty of research out there to support using butter and ghee (especially from grass-fed cows) for cooking, as well as olive oil. Please do your research! There is everything WRONG with the kind of oils that Macdonald's use, as well as their meat and cheese. You are propagating Big Food lies and confusing people.
