    Many people might choose to follow a diet high in protein content to lose weight and build muscle mass. But a new study in mice suggests that such a diet could put cardiovascular health at risk.

    “There are clear weight loss benefits to high protein diets, which has boosted their popularity in recent years,” says Dr. Babak Razani, an associate professor of medicine from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO.

    I think that's good advice, Bill Hudson, but I'm guessing your trainer would be better informed on diet and nutrition than your doctor. Most doctors get little if any nutrition education in all their years of medical school.

    Another good example of simplistic advice being poor advice. One's protein intake should depend upon many factors, including what source of protein, what type of weight training and other exercise is being done, and what are the other components of the diet (protein with fat, protein with carbs?) So many factors to consider. As Islander has stated, an uneducated person such as a medical doctor really has no idea as to the proper advice for the person as a whole person.
