47. How Muscles Drive Metabolism - with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon #WellnessWednesdays

Read more

I love Dr. Gabrielle Lyon because she has a unique practice that focuses on muscle-centric medicine. She fights protein food shaming with research-backed science on how protein intake supports fat loss and prevents sarcopenia, and she explains how muscles and proteins play a role in decreasing inflammation and how protein deficiency can manifest in disease.

Dr. Lyon received her doctorate in osteopathic medicine from the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in family medicine. She earned her undergraduate degree in human nutrition from the University of Illinois, where she studied vitamin and mineral metabolism, chronic disease prevention and management, and the physiological effects of diet composition.

You will learn about...

  • What protein is and why we need it
  • The benefits of muscle mass
  • How to optimize muscle tissue
  • Muscle as a disposal place for glucose
  • A day in the life of Dr. Lyon
  • Signs of protein deficiency
  • Optimal times for workout or protein intake

Debunking Protein Myths: What to Eat to Get Stronger and Live Longer – Dr. Gabrielle Lyon with Dave Asprey : 722

Read more

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we’re talking about muscle, protein and the benefits of meat with a doctor who focuses on Muscle-Centric-Medicine™. Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is an osteopathic physician specializing in functional medicine. She says muscles function well beyond locomotion and aesthetics. 

“Muscle is the organ of longevity and your survivability is directly related to the quality of your muscle tissue,” she says. 

Dr. Lyon has made a career studying, training and optimizing muscle. She’s a former fitness model and nationally ranked fitness competitor. In her private practice in New York City, many of her patients are part of elite military special operations, such as Navy SEALS, Green Berets, Army Rangers and Canadian Assaulters.

Her core Muscle-Centric-Medicine™ philosophy centers on muscle as an endocrine organ and how it determines the way in which we age, our body composition, obesity, and insulin resistance. As an endocrine organ, she explains, muscle is your “metabolic currency.”

We talk about the Carnivore Diet, carbs, protein and fat ratios, and false plant-based narratives—and what those things mean for health and aging.

“Veganism in and of itself is what, 100 years old?,” says Dr. Lyon. “We simply weren't designed to do that as it relates to muscle tissue, as it relates to aging, and it's just not how we are biologically designed.”

“It's so interesting when you think about fat and you think about carbohydrates,” she says. “Some people will say fat is good for you. You've got other people that will say that it's not, and sugar. No one will argue that Twinkies are bad for you. But when it comes to dietary protein because it has a face, people make very emotional decisions and totally ignore the science.”

Listen on to find out much more about why protein matters for your muscles and the state of your health.

Gabrielle Lyon on How to Stay Young, Smart and Fit Forever | Health Theory

Read more

You should eat more protein, and yes, that means red meat. This statement might surprise some audiences, but it is based on the fundamentally sound science that high muscle strength is independently associated with lower all cause mortality. Dr. Gabrielle Lyon has been on the forefront of “muscle-centric medicine” for years, and here’s what really is surprising. She became obsessed with the concept because of her work with palliative care, dementia and geriatrics. On this episode of Health Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Gabrielle Lyon explains why muscle should be viewed as a vital organ which protects against everything from Alzheimer’s to COVID-19. She discusses the optimal high-protein diet, strongly advocates that everyone engage in resistance training, and explains why people should focus on gaining muscle instead of focusing on losing fat.

Does Animal Protein Cause Cancer? with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon

Read more

Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it’s easier than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health today so you can feel better and live longer, you’ve come to the right place.

Do animal proteins cause cancer? Are they dangerous? Many popular views and diets including the keto and paleo diets say that animal proteins should be reduced or eliminated for various health reasons, while other evidence shows that the health benefits of animal proteins outweigh the risks. We’re going to dive deep into this critical topic today to figure out exactly how much protein is too much, what happens to muscle mass when you limit protein intake, and how protein affects overall health and wellbeing.

I’m joined today by Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, a fellowship trained physician and expert in nutritional science and geriatrics to discuss the facts about protein. We talk about the truth behind some of today’s most popular claims about protein, the negative effects of experimentation with macrobiotics, and the “clean meat” movement of the future.

Key Takeaways:

[1:10] Today’s topic is animal protein — does it cause cancer? Do the health benefits outweigh the risks?

[2:55] Dr. Christianson introduces Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, who has trained under one of the world’s leading experts on protein and begins by clarifying the facts behind protein and cancer.

[6:05] Questions you need to ask yourself when engaging in conversations about the relationship between food intake and cancer.

[7:45] Understanding mTOR stimulators, animal proteins and their link to obesity and cancer.

[12:18] Shifts in trends of protein intake based on NHANES data show that average muscle mass is dangerously low despite an increasing need as people age.

[15:41] Why would a change in protein affect body composition and obesity? Dr. Lyon explains the link between protein intake and the need for increased muscle protection.

[17:57] The protein leverage hypothesis provides clarity to Dr. C’s experience with exhibiting eating disorder-like symptoms when he was lacking protein in his diet.

[21:58] Is protein carcinogenic? Dr. Lyon offers clarification about claims from The China Study.

[24:09] Understanding risk ratios of cancer and protein intake as well as the potential effects of under intaking protein.

[26:59] Vegetarian? Vegan? Dr. Lyon gives dietary suggestions for meeting protein needs from plant-based foods and a gram guideline for protein intake for every dietary style.

[32:03] Healthspan vs. lifespan — understanding the value of arriving at old age in the best health possible, and how you can make a high quality life happen.

[34:07] Low-protein, five-day modified fasting programs are hugely popular right now, but how do they really affect overall health?

[40:04] There is no doubt that higher muscle mass positively affects health throughout ageing, and Dr. C. notes the increased vulnerability of women to such detrimental conditions.

[43:05] A deeper look at the clean meat movement, sustainability, and the true correlation between cows and the greenhouse effects.

[49:10] The biggest reason Dr. C. believes the clean meat movement won’t catch on anytime soon might surprise you.

[53:19] Genetic variability, soy, the effectiveness of extreme dieting and why it just doesn’t work for everyone.

[55:04] Dr. Lyon wraps up with a summary of the conversation and encourages listeners to take an objective look at poor science and agenda-driven information.

Dr Gabrielle Lyon

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon is a holistic doctor focussed on longevity and the way she approaches this is through building muscle. Her work has shown her the central role that muscle plays in living a long and healthy life and she is here on the show today to explain this philosophy and her personal and professional journey in exercise and nutrition. We start off our conversation considering the current state of the world and some simple steps for remaining balanced and in good shape during these uncertain times.

We discuss balancing different client personality types and allowing people to play to their strengths while offering the necessary perspective for them to achieve their goals. Gabrielle explains her reliance on the four types framework laid out by Gretchen Rubin and from there we dive into fulfilling potential, confronting fear, and the ability to move on from trauma.

We hear about Dr. Lyon's evolving process and how it has grown and streamlined over the years into something efficient and client-friendly. The meat of our conversation is spent with Gabrielle explaining her muscular lens for health and why she places so much importance on certain muscles in the body. We get into protein intake, different dietary options and recommendations, and Dr. Lyon comments on fasting, veganism, and carbohydrates. For all of this and a whole lot more from a massively inspiring individual, join us for this episode!
