Optimizing Protein for Physical Performance with Don Layman, PhD and Kelli Kidd, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN
Protein is the most controversial of all nutrients because it is the foundation of how and what you eat. Your food choices and functional health of your muscles are defined by the amount and types of protein that you consume. It is critical to understand how age, exercise, and your physical performance goals affect your protein needs and choices. This presentation will address protein needs and concepts about meal threshold, anabolic response range, and meal distribution of protein to optimize muscle health and performance. In addition, practical applications and challenges related to protein consumption for the athlete will be discussed.
