Beauty Inside Out with Kimberly Snyder

Episode 185: Reinventing Yourself With John Salley & The Risk Of Too Much Protein

July 30, 2017

With so much emphasis on protein, it's easy to forget that excess protein is not only toxic (which we've covered extensively)--it also can't be used by the body. The real secret to maximizing protein is actually focusing on what protein BECOMES after it's digested: amino acids. Amino acids bring many health benefits, from muscle and metabolism to brain and beyond. Tony and I review the latest science and give you tips for maximizing your amino acid intake. Next, I have my very special guest John Salley who is Master of Habit Change, NBA Champ, an Actor, Philanthropist, Chef, Wellness Advocate, and Entrepreneur. We talk about his passion in the fight against diabetes and his documentary "Invisible Vegan". Listen in as John shares the many different aspects of his career and how health and fitness is a huge part of his life. Tony breaks down how amino acids are the building blocks of protein... Ways in which amino acids are beneficial for healthy skin, hair, and muscle tone... What protein does for the body... What digestive enzymes do for your body and why they are so important... Why it's so important to include digestive enzymes into your lifestyle... Why we should shift our focus from protein to amino acids... John shares his transition from his successful basketball career to what he is doing now... What it means for John to be a "Master of Habit Change", and how he became a master of this change... How John's journey led him to becoming a plant based chef... What the documentary "Invisible Vegan" is about and where did the idea came from... What the Operation Smile is... We talk about John's passion in the fight against diabetes... How John is involved with the PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine), and what his mission is with the Child Nutrition Act...
