Personal Dietary Intake Paper Introduction The purpose of this paper is to analyze my personal dietary intake as a way of better understanding the ways in which the foods I consumer are helping or hurting my overall nutrition and health. This project is about understanding how consuming too much or too little
The athlete I have chosen is a 22 year old city soccer player named Erika Ibarra. It is important for Erika to have a nutrition that supports her power and endurance training for soccer. It is important for her to have a well balanced source of nutrients. She needs a goof source of carbohydrates and fats to help give her the energy she needs to support her endurance work outs. She also should have a good amount of protein to repair muscles before and after her workout. Her recommended daily calorie intake is 2000 calories according to the super tracker tool. I would also recommend her taking 1 serving size of multivitamins in the morning to insure that she is getting a good source of vitamins and minerals. Below is the 24 hour meal recall for
The biological value in whey protein enhances the body’s ability to absorb essential amino acids after resistance training decreasing the athlete’s recovery time. When athletes combine whey protein and creatine monohydrate they expect “a greater increase in lean tissue mass and muscular strength than supplementations with whey protein alone” (Burke, Chilibeck, Davison, Candow, Farthing, & Smith-Palmer 2001, p 350). Exogenous Cr supplementation increases the body’s Cr levels until saturation occurs. This saturation of Cr increases the PCK shuttle continuum allowing training intensity, volume, and duration of the exercise the athlete is performing to continue at a maximum rate. Any excess Cr in the blood is cleared through sweat, urination or renal filtration. Measurements in strength and peak torques of athletes supplementing with whey protein and creatine monohydrate (WC), whey protein (W), and a placebo (P) were taken. According to Burke et al, (2001) “repeated measure analysis of variance was used to assess changes in body composition, strength, and peak torque for the three groups (WC vs. W vs. P) across time” (p. 354). A twelve week strength training program was constructed and consisted of a “4-day split routine involving whole body musculature” (Burke et al, 2001. p 352). Subjects used detailed training logs to compare progress over the 12 week experiment. The end result from this experiment shows that subjects who “supplemented with both creatine and whey
They discuss a few different studies that have been down, one of which was done by adding protein to a carbohydrate sports drink. In this study cyclists were given the carbohydrate sports drink, a placebo or the carbohydrate sports drink spiked with protein. In this study it was found that there was no benefit to having the additional protein in the drink during exercise. And although there have been studies with opposite results, they have yet to replicated (Gibala). They also discuss the importance of athletes finding receiving the best information when they are conducting their own research when it comes to protein. They suggest that athletes find credible sources when using the Internet and/or finding a certified
When you are eating to increase your muscle size, 1 g of protein per pound of bodyweight is advised. You can always increase or decrease protein in your diet depending on your requirements. Other than this I advise my clients to consume 15% of total calories from good quality protein. If you are a vegetarian opt for plant protein otherwise animal protein is considered best for bodybuilders.
The benefit of adequate nutrition contributing to successful athletic performance is well known, but not completely understood and applied among athletes. The purpose of this study was to assess nutrient intakes, and dietary habits
Methods: In a random double-blind study, 30 male student athletes were assigned a specific supplementation to add to their diets during off season strength training for 10 weeks. Subjects were thoroughly informed of the experimental procedures and before participation signed informed consent forms in adherence with the human subjects guidelines of The University of Georgia and the American
Hypothesis: The quality of protein may affect the strength gain differently. Objective: To determent whether, when protein intake was at least 20 g at each meal, the consumption of a isocaloric high protein diet rich in dairy protein would provide greater increases in muscle strength, lean mass and physical function compared with either an isocaloric diet representative of the typical Australian dietary protein intake (i.e. ~1.1 g/kg/d) or an isocaloric diet high in non-dairy (i.e. soy) protein in older adults undertaking a program of resistance training.
There are three separate discussions that cover protein basics, protein for recovery and protein during exercise. Dr. Martin Gibala, Dr. Jeff Zachwieja and Dr. Chris Rosenbloom are three peer-reviewed experts that help provide answers to common questions concerning protein and its role in an athlete’s diet.
This paper is mainly an analysis of nutrition and performance related to how much energy is needed, body composition assessment, ways to maintain and lose weight, liquid and vitamin needs, nutrition recommendations for vegetarian athletes, and the roles and responsibilities of the sports dietitian. The main proctors of the assessments
Athletes need to take care of their bodies to perform well and to stay healthy. Taking care of their bodies means having a healthy diet. It’s a strong belief that diet can positively affect an athlete's overall performance. But this is a belief that isn’t backed up by any solid scientific data. “many athletes believe vegetarianism does improve their stamina, mental alertness, ability to recover from injuries, and overall general health.” Athletes who eat vegetables and all around healthier food usually perform better due to being healthier in general. The diet of an athlete is crucial in their well being though. Athletes are constantly building muscles so they need their bodies to be very healthy. To be very healthy, you need to be
According to the text athletes require more protein than the average person. The reason this is true is because athletes are more active. During their exercise they need protein to prevent hypoglycemia, for which the protein produces glucose to prevent this. Another reasons they need more protein is because the need the protein to carry more oxygen to the blood vessels also know by hemoglobin. One of the most important reasons athletes also need protein is because it repairs tiny muscle tears caused by their rigorous workouts. I think that I get close to meeting my own protein needs. I try to monitor what I eat. I took my calculations to see how much my protein intake amount is. 185 pounds/2.2 pounds/kg= 84 and then 84 kgx1g/kg=84
It is not uncommon for bodybuilders to advise a protein intake as high as 2–4 g per kilogram of bodyweight per day. However, scientific literature such as 'Evaluation of protein requirements for trained strength athletes (November 1992)' has suggested this is higher than necessary, as protein intakes greater than 1.8 g per kilogram of body weight showed to have no greater effect on muscle hypertrophy. A study carried out by American College of Sports Medicine (2002) put the recommended daily protein intake for athletes at 1.2–1.8 g per kilogram of body weight. Conversely, Di Pasquale (2008), citing recent studies,
Assignment 4: Diet Recall – Fats and Proteins Scientists have been able to estimate the amount of nutrients that the body requires. However, the amount of any particular nutrient varies from person to person, depending on your “age, sex, general health status, physical activity level, and use of medications and drugs” (Schiff 2013). It is also important to remember that consuming the required amount of nutrients that meets your dietary guidelines does not mean you will achieve an optimal nutritional status either. There are various references to determine one’s adequate calorie intake and the nutrients that one should be consuming, including looking at DRI’s(Dietary Reference Intakes) that nutritional excerpts have used to make dietary recommendations,
