With so much emphasis on protein, it’s easy to forget that excess protein is not only toxic (which we’ve covered extensively)--it also can’t be used by the body. The real secret to maximizing protein is actually focusing on what protein BECOMES after it’s digested: amino acids. Amino acids bring many health benefits, from muscle and metabolism to brain and beyond. Tony and I review the latest science and give you tips for maximizing your amino acid intake.
Next, I have my very special guest John Salley who is Master of Habit Change, NBA Champ, an Actor, Philanthropist, Chef, Wellness Advocate, and Entrepreneur. We talk about his passion in the fight against diabetes and his documentary “Invisible Vegan”. Listen in as John shares the many different aspects of his career and how health and fitness is a huge part of his life.
About John Salley
A proud native of Brooklyn, New York, John found a love for basketball at an early age. He accepted a Basketball Scholarship to Georgia Tech to play for legendary head coach Bobby Cremins. From there Salley went on to become a 15-year NBA veteran and was the first NBA player to win four championships with three different teams.
After his retirement from the NBA in 2000, Salley explored several opportunities in both television and film. John has served as host for numerous award shows and recently hosted the Reunion Shows of VH-1’s #1 rated show, Basketball Wives. John is also the head of his own production company.
John is actively involved with Operation Smile, PETA and the fight against Diabetes. In addition, John is involved with PCRM and visited Washington in Nov ’09 and May ’10, speaking to Congress about the Child Nutrition Act, asking Members to support legislation that would increase vegetarian options in meals served in public schools.
John has adopted a plant based (raw vegan) lifestyle, and is a frequent speaker at VegFest’s across the USA. As a Wellness Advocate, one of John’s main missions in life is to continue to educate people on the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle through better eating habits.
