Test 2 3416 Goal 94 Protein Amino acid building blocks contain nitrogen Essential Amino Acids Not made by the body must get from food NonEssential Made by the body Complete Foods Have all essential amino acids Incomplete Foods Don39t have all essential amino acids Can get all amino acids by having a varied diet Functions of Proteins and Amino acids in Human Metabolism Structure enzymes hormones neurotransmitters movement transport immunity acidbase balance uid balance energy Body builders get a lot of protein Runners gymnasts don39t get a lot of protein Amino acids aren t stored anywhere in the body they reside in the blood and body uids If there are excess amino acids in the body they are deanimated broken down in a process called deamination in the liver which means they take out the nitrogen and turn it into urea excreted in the urine this leaves a carbon residue that is converted into carbohydrate fats Nitrogen balance studies are used to determine usage of protein Amount will vary with an increase in exercise In an athlete their protein requirement is dependent on energy intake degree of training intensity of training Chart represents how protein travels through the body Dietary protein l Pool of amino acids in blood and body fluids 1 Synthesis gt Body tissues Hormones Degradation Enzymes Antibodies Deamination in liver Nitrogen L Urea excretion Protein needs will increase with growth starting an exercise program calorie restriction Carbon residue e l Carbohydrate Fats due to diet anorexia depleted glycogen stores How well a person utilizes protein depends on body composition activity level energy and CH0 adequacy protein quality hormones illness and injury To build muscles it takes extra exercise appropriate protein intake adequate calories from ca rbs To add 1 pound of muscle requires additional protein of 1014 grams per day Body can add only two pounds of muscle per week under the best of circumstances Person gmkg Sedentary Adult Recreational

injury chronic fatigue and poor muscle strength BMR becomes depressed major cause of amenorrhea possible sports anemia during early stages of exercise If intake is excessive there is often eating protein instead of getting adequate CHO increase urination and possible dehydration possible calcium loss longterm ketosis may occur high protein is often also high fat unbalanced diet costly so less money for other foods Guides for protein are for resistance exercise aerobic exercisers require less 4 equally spaced proteincontaining meals per day 02503g proteinkgmeal 1 presleep meal 6g proteinkgmeal No bene t of eating protein during exercise Studies have found no difference in protein synthesis if given before 1hr post 3hr post exercise Amount needed to stimulate muscle recovery is small Complete proteins are best Repeated small doses of protein over time are more effective than one large amount Giving greater amounts shows no added bene t Post Exercise Protein Intake Less protein is needed if carbs are included Ratio of carbs to protein should be 254 g carb to 1 g of protein Examples of foods with this ratio Chocolate milk Banana 14 cup almonds 1 apple 1 c skim milk bagel with peanut butter ect Leucine Hypothesis Amino acid leucine triggers muscle protein synthesis 25g leucine per meal is suggested with 30g protein Leucine is plentiful in whey protein If meal includes high quality protein foods enough leucine is likely to be present Nutrition Assessment Nutrition Assessment Detailed information that is nutrition related and relevant is obtained Critical steps to success Assessment nutrition diagnosis goal setting action plan evaluation and reassessment Nutrition Assessment done using A to E guidelines Anthropometric Body composition analysis All body fat measurements have a percentage error of about 34 Methods Hydrostatic weighing body plethysmography Bod Pod skin folds bioelectrical impedance BIA infrared interactance Futrex Medical Methods DEXA Dual energy xray absorptiometry MRI Magnetic resonance imaging CT Computer tomography Hydrometry Neutron activity Whole body potassium Body Mass Index BMI Uses height and weight to estimate body composition not very helpful in athletes moderately correlated to body fat single value used for all genders heights if 20 The problem with athletes using BMI is that if they are muscular their weight
