Today Richard and Carl geek out on Protein. So much of what they do is separating fact from fiction, and this episode is no different. Did you know that excess protein turns into glucose? Of course, there is science to back all of this up. Good thing the dudes have learned to harness their OCD for the powers of good!


Carl mentioned that sugars like glucose and fructose trigger an insulin response but only glucose does. Fructose doesn't require insulin to be metabolized.

Richard mentioned that after 6 months of keto he was left with "massive" muscles, this is in relation to the muscles he thought he totally didn't have before he started keto.
