Fitness professionals, nutritionist and gym owners learned about the importance of protein in the diet and optimal distribution throughout the day at MANIA®, a fitness education conference recently held in Dallas. Checkoff-funded speaker, Mike Roussell, PhD, shared research and insights about the benefits of high quality protein, like lean beef, in the diet. Roussell is a well-known expert contributor to both national print publications and leading online fitness outlets. The Texas Beef Council (TBC) also participated in the conference expo sharing with attendees how beef plays a healthy role in fueling muscles and energizing the body.
