Occupation/Education: Lab Research Assistant; BS in Biochemistry at the University of Minnesota with hopes of graduate studies in Clinical Endocrinology.

Training Ambitions: 1000lb or higher 3-lift total in the 165lb-class in a raw powerlifting meet, and help others achieve their goals.

About Me:  I have been weight training since high school and it has grown into a passion of mine ever since.

Your articles are very informative and easy to understand; thank you for that! I noticed in your bio that you are interested in endocrinology and are currently a lab research assistant. I have a question that perhaps you can answer. I was recently diagnosed with Cushing's Syndrome; what is the best way to supplement protein (and what types of protein) in order to prevent further catabolism? I've been combing the internet and have been unable to find any information in regard to hypercortisolism and protein supplementation. I appreciate any information you could provide!
