Episode 119 Nutritional Science: In The Weeds On Creatine, Protein and Other Nutritional Supplementation with Dr. Jose Antonio

So I was doing some research for my newsletter, The Vitruvian Letter. I was writing an article on the wonders of creatine. That’s when I started stumbling across the research of one Dr. Jose Antonio. Wow. I struck gold.

Dr. Antonio has forgotten more about creatine and sports nutrition than most people will ever know. So I reached out to him. I couldn’t think of a better person to learn from and have on The Jason Wright Show.

What I found was not only one of the most knowledgeable people in sports nutrition but also one of the coolest guys around. Enjoy my conversation with Dr. Jose Antonio.
