New Research Updates Protein Requirements

Current recommendations for protein intake from the Institute of Medicine (2005) states ‘no additional protein is suggested for healthy adults undertaking resistance or endurance exercise’.
A recent paper from the American Society for Nutrition monitored young bodybuilders on a non-training day measuring oxidation of ingested L-phenylalaline to CO2 in response to graded protein intake (0.1 to 3.5 g per kg of bm per day).
The authors conclude that protein recommendations for male body builders at rest on a non training day exceed current IOM recommendations by ~2.6 fold and estimated intakes were 1.7-2.2 g per kg of bm per day.
