I listened to an informative Super Human Radio podcast this morning during my gym/work commute.  Host Carl Lanore interviewed Dr. Scott Connelly for this segment, and what an interesting segment it was.  This show is part I of a four-part series covering insulin, insulin resistance and the diet/exercise insulin connection.  Dr. Connelly drills down pretty deep in his explanations — much deeper than any lay person needs to go — but it is, nonetheless, highly interesting stuff.

Dr. Connelly, for those who might not remember (or for those who might not have been around — I forget that I’m gettin’ to be an old timer in this game), the diet/fitness scene of the early ’90’s, has always been a staunch advocate of a high protein (whey isolate) consumption type diet.  He is the inventor/founder of the Met Rx meal replacement supplement, one of the first really bonafide and nutritious MRS to hit the market.  The good Dr. has apparently improved upon his original “recipe” and, after selling the Met Rx line, has begun a new venture by the name of Progenex.  Although I don’t use protein supplements myself, Dr. Connelly does make a good argument for their use, given the sad state of the American food supply system.  Tainted animal rearing practices lead to a tainted and incomplete, final product.  I can’t really argue with that reasoning.

Enjoy the interview.
