Plant vs Animal Protein for Midlife Women | Ask the Experts

Episode #477 In the ongoing debate between plant vs animal protein there’s really only one thing that matters, your health. Whether mentally or physically or there’s a battle between the two in your body, I’m willing to bet you’ve had this conversation at least internally. Is it right for you is almost always the best question to ask.

In this episode we collectively answer why, for midlife women, the question of plant vs. animal protein has a clear answer for these experts. I warn you it’s a persuasive fairly one-sided outcome. If you’re open to hearing all the pros and cons about a topic, however, this is worth the listen.

Identify Your Hormone & Movement Connection

Listening and tuning into show notes in real time? Tuesday, August 31, 2021 is the LAST DAY to register for the 10-day Hot, Not Bothered Challenge. It runs Sept 1-10 (no exceptions: this isn’t a course, it’s a challenge).

If you need to understand the connection between hormone balancing fitness and exchange trying to punish and beat and burn weight and fat off your body… OR need to get started doing the right thing so you’re not exhausted when you do it… This Is for You. If you’re already in a program that works: this is not for you. If it’s working, don’t fix it. If it’s broken, ditch it. Get in now before it’s too late.

My Guests:

Maria Claps, an Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner, and Kristin Johnson, a Board-certified nutritionist, describe themselves as plain-spoken friends and practitioners who share a passion for women’s health, especially women’s health at midlife. As both are themselves menopausal, they’ve refined the art and science of thriving as a midlife woman based on both clinical and personal experience.

They combine individualized nutrition and lifestyle changes tailored to midlife women’s needs with mindset coaching, lab testing and hormone replacement therapy education to help women thrive so that they can stop or prevent their health from spinning out of control.

Questions we answer in this episode:

  • What happens to women’s metabolism in midlife?
  • What can they do about it? Why is animal protein key?
  • Why is plant-protein a mistake for midlife women?
  • Do you think midlife issues be addressed with diet alone?
  • Why is plant vs. animal protein such a heated debate?
