You really need to change the ratio of muscle to body fat. Being under-muscled is because we're sedentary. We're not moving the way that we used to, we live in a very domesticated way. 10,000 years ago, we were hunters and gatherers. We were moving 10 to 14 miles a day. We’re not doing that anymore.

Listen as Dr. Gabrielle Lyon joins Dr. Taz to explain the concept of muscle-centric medicine, why you need more muscle in your body, and how protein plays into that.
