Protein calories – what’s the real story?

OK, spoiler – nobody knows. But this brings up a fascinating question – what if people (like myself) who eat mostly meat are actually eating at an energy deficit?

The relevant part is right at the end of the podcast (I’ve started the YT clip just before the relevant area, although it’s all worth a listen).

Yes, I know at an overall level this is what we want to do in order to utilise our fat stores, but if it’s WAY too low you get all sorts of problems as your body fights back in order to stay alive.

Given the podcast is with Amber, it’s really good value, although it gets (as this podcast does through a lack of self-discipline/experience from Paul) WAY into the weeds at points, but get through that, it’s still good info.
