St.Vincent Sports Performance Nutrition Tip- Proteins



hi I'm Lindsey Langford sports dietitian at statements and sports performance you can't walk down your grocery store aisles anymore without seeing new icons or different logos saying higher protein this one has seven grams this one has 10 grams it's a hot topic right now but it does come with great warrant there's been a lot of really good research to show in the increasing and protein intake it can help to maintain muscle mass help to build muscle mass help to increase satiety and generally speaking it reduces that excess refined processed carbohydrates that are in most Americans diet on a daily basis so how much do we need a lot of the research is saying that we can really find that 20 to 40 grams but more consecutively throughout your day so smaller more frequent meals at that 20 to 40 gram of protein mark especially pre bed has shown to help increase muscle mass the most if we're really trying to put muscle mass on let's don't skip that pre bed snack looking for weight maintenance it may not be as big of an issue for you but trying to have that higher protein in the morning and spread it out throughout the day can help just increase utilization so when we're looking at exact grams throughout your whole day the max that you truly can absorb to help increase muscle benefits and gains is one gram per pound of body weight that's your max in most the time you can get by with about 75 percent of that so your take-home message is a steady stream of protein throughout your day can possibly help you to reach your goals I'm Lindsey Langford sports dietitian at st.
