    Great podcast as usual! A couple of questions – firstly, what is your opinion on occasionally using egg whites as a source of lean protein rather than the whole egg? And secondly, in regards to gelatin/glycine, whenever I’ve taken any type of gelatin or glycine supplement it has worsened my anxiety. Do you know what the cause could be? Possibly a histamine issue?
