Did you even know there's a Physique Enhancement Laboratory out there? Well, there is, and Dr. Bill Campbell heads it up at the University of South Florida. In recent years, he's worked on a number of groundbreaking studies looking into the ideal protein intake for women, what makes flexible dieting or IIFYM work (or not work), and how you can essentially make protein "free calories."
More than almost any other episode we've made so far, this conversation was totally packed with both fascinating research and real-world application. Load it up in the queue next time you're about to do cardio!
