Rob, in a somehow similar perspective, what do you think of Batcheldor’s « Protein-Pulse Eating Plan »?
Never heard of it, but looked it up. Interesting. I'm not sure how you extrapolate these studies of untrained old and young women to athletes ie weightlifters who put rather extreme demands on muscle metabolism. Also for 2 wks before the study all the women were given a low amount of protein, and then somewhat protein loaded. I would say this is tantamount to CHO loading.
We are all individuals with wildly varying requirements for nutritition, read Biochemical Individuality by Roger Williams(the biochemist who discovered Pantothenic acid) this book is a real eye opener. +
B.Sc.(Pharm) but certainly no expert in nutrition
An athlete needs 1 to 1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight, which generally means that about 40% of your calories are going to come from protein. Most of the adjustments revolve around manipulating fat and carb consumption.
