Dr. Donald Layman is an expert on protein.

⚠️We are not eating enough protein.

💔In one study, the estimates indicated that 7.7% of adolescent females and 7.2-8.6% of older adult women reported consuming protein levels below their estimated average requirement. (PMID: 18469286)

🥀The problem is that the dietary guidelines for protein is already subpar. (Dr. Layman explains this more in our chat).

🥩Protein is the building block of our body. Yet as people age, they tend to eat even less protein.

🦷Maybe because of the overwhelming (but false) beliefs that meat is hard on digestion or that it’s hard on the teeth.

💪🏼If you want to age gracefully (maintain muscle mass) and live longer, protein is the macro you want to get enough of.

⭐️and fat for energy without carbs, hormones, and mental health).

Carbs for….?

⛑Make sure to eat sufficient protein, especially as you age. Your health depends on it.
