So Friday night I'm in the hotel lounge getting ready to go out for dinner, and I got suckered into a debate with a bodybuilder.
Even worse, the conversation was about protein.
So I had to listen to the bodybuilder rant and rave about how you need hundreds of grams of protein per day to build muscle.
But that's not true.
You don't need...
- to eat hundreds of grams of protein per day
- to eat chicken breast and cans of tuna at every meal
- to drink a single protein shake
(I haven't had a protein shake since the winter of 2006).
In fact, my friend Brad Pilon just wrote a shocking new book about exactly how much protein we need to change our bodies.
I read it 2 weeks ago on a quiet Friday night and I loved it. It answers all of your protein questions, from "how much should I eat" to "how much protein can I digest at one time".
Don't believe the protein hype,

PS - Brad is a reformed protein-addict...
...You'll laugh at how obsessed he once was with protein...and how he's now leaner and healthier without massive amounts of protein in his diet.
