Protein Requirments for ATHLETES

By |October 25th, 2007|Uncategorized|

Due to a few fellow students concern about protein requirements for people who are active here is a follow up to those questions. This article is from the ACE, the American Council of Exercise. To give a summary the article says that athletes primary fuel source is carbohydrates as we all know. Correct me if I am wrong but when you are an athlete 70% of your diet should be carbohydrates.

The article goes on to say that athletes DO NOT need more protein for competitive weight lifting saying, "The ADA does not support the notion that the protein needs of a competitive weight lifter are greater than the average individual. The official ADA position is that a well-balanced diet will provide the dietary protein a weight lifter needs."

The article did mention a person that works out at high intense aerobic such as a competitve runner, cyclist saying, "The American Dietetic Association (ADA) recommends increased protein intake only for individuals involved in intense aerobic training (greater than 70 percent VO² max). "

YET you have to take into consideration "that since average Americans, including most athletes, already consume one-and-a-half to two times the RDA, it would appear that athletes do not need to increase their protein intake."
