65 – Protein for pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss and beyond with Luka & Kate

We always hear that protein is important… but what even is it? Why is everyone on social media always talking about it? And how (and how much!?) do I get it into my diet when I’m a busy mum? Help!

On today’s episode, we dedicate a whole “help me” segment to all things protein for mums. We took your questions on instagram, and answer the what, the why, the how and more.

For those who are tuning in for the first time, a little about us…

In this podcast we discuss

  • What is protein and why we need it

  • Daily protein requirements and how these change through pregnancy, postpartum, exercise and more
  • Whether eating more protein is the key to weightloss
  • How we can consume sufficient protein without weighing or measuring our food
  • All about protein powders and whether these are safe for us and our kids
  • Protein on a plant based diet and whether we need to do protein combining
  • … and so much more!
