Why do carbs and fats get so much shade? It seems like protein is always the “it” girl and in the world of nutrition misinformation, fats and carbs have historically been associated with weight gain, which has created fear around these food groups. Today we’re talking about whether or not protein provides more nutritional benefits than carbs and fats.
