Wade Lightheart and Matt Gallant: More Protein, More Digestion, More Amino Acids, and More Muscle — Barbell Shrugged #368

Matt Gallant is the CEO of BiOptimzers and has a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. He’s been a strength and conditioning coach for multiple pro-athletes, a self-defense instructor, and has over 10 years experience formulating supplements. Fun fact: Matt’s been playing guitar and keyboards for over 19 years… and recorded a hard rock CD when he was young and angry.

Wade Lightheart is the president of BiOptimzers, a 3-Time Canadian Natural Bodybuilding Champion, and one of the world’s premier authorities on Natural Nutrition and Training Methods. Having majored in Sports Science at the University of New Brunswick, he has authored numerous books on health, nutrition and exercise which have sold in over 80 countries. Wade is sought out by athletes and high-performance oriented individuals worldwide for his advice on how to optimize their health and fitness levels.

In this episode, we talk about why our culture struggles with digestion, understanding protease and how it helps digestion, what are digestive enzymes, why you do not need more meat to get more protein, and much more.
