BMI, Plant-Based Protein, Stretching, and Mouthguards

Greg and Eric are back for Season 4! This episode begins with a big announcement about what Greg and Eric have been up to, followed by some Good News and Feats of Strength. After that, Eric discusses some new research that appears to vindicate plant-based proteins, and Greg discusses new research about how BMI, fat mass, and fat-free mass relate to mortality risk. They close out the show with some practical tips from a Coach’s Corner segment, a few miscellaneous Q&As, and some cooking info to wrap up the episode.
