Many of my clients ask me about supplements, in particular protein. My philosophy is simple- most people get enough nutrients through their diet. However, there are special population who may benefit from supplements like the young and elderly.There is no evidence that shows a linear increase in muscle mass or performance related to protein intake. In a healthy population, protein intake is really not necessary. More is not necessarily better. The excess protein is excreted in urination and you end up with expensive urine!
