Impact of timing of protein intake on nitrogen balance in exercising older individuals on a hypercaloric diet
MetadataShow full item record
We have previously shown that in older adults, consumption of protein in the form of chocolate milk immediately after exercise enhances nitrogen balance (NBAL) when energy balance is maintained. Since it is known that hypercaloric diets increase nitrogen (N) retention, it is important to know if the timing of protein intake after aerobic exercise provides further increases in N retention compared to the consumption of carbohydrate only post exercise. PURPOSE: To investigate if consumption of protein and carbohydrate (PRO + CHO) immediately after exercise as opposed to earlier in the day can ...
