What Is A Podcast?
Podcasting is a collection of technologies for automatically distributing audio and video programs over the Internet via a publish and subscribe model.

Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "radio shows," while giving broadcast radio or television producers a new distribution method.

In this interview, Layne Norton discusses interesting insights about Leucine and protein metabolism. Also covered is his exciting research to determine the optimum intake of protein at meals.

Layne also reveals what he estimates to be the ideal range of protein intake per meal for bodybuilders and other strength athletes. Also covered are: which type of protein stimulates muscles protein synthesis the most, making protein substances more anabolic, mTOR story and the leucine connection, plus other interesting nutrition topics!

What Does "mTOR" Stand For?
"mTOR" stands for Mammalian Target of Rapamycin, one of the body's protein synthesis regulators, energy sensors, and nutrient sensors of amino acid availability, specifically of leucine. mTOR is activated when ATP levels are high, and blocked when ATP levels are decreased. mTOR activation is vital for skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
