Your appetite for protein | Professors David Raubenheimer and Stephen J Simpson

Listen Now

In Episode #194 I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Professor’s David Raubenheimer and Stephen J. Simpson. For over 30 years, David and Stephen, leading researchers from the University of Sydney, have been studying ways in which nature can teach us about the science of healthy eating. How and why we eat, how appetites are fed and regulated – and how, in the end, it all comes back to five appetites.

Topics covered include:

  • How Steve and David’s project ‘Eat Like The Animals’ came about and how they found themselves working together in their field of science
  • The findings from their study on the dietary patterns of locusts
  • The process by which signals are released that create an appetite for protein
  • The negative health outcomes of consuming ultra-processed foods and reducing protein intake
  • What happens when you over-consume protein
  • The importance of protein quality
  • Changes in protein requirements as we age and protein supplementation

Enjoy, friends
