Protein for the High-Performance Athlete

Protein for the High-Performance Athlete

PaleoMeal Protein ChocolateBecoming a high performance athlete does not happen overnight. To be an elite athlete, one needs to understand nutrition and how to take care of his or her body. Understanding where energy comes from is essential if you want to perform at your best.

All of the energy your body needs comes from three different parts:

–          Protein

–          Carbohydrates

–          Fats

Understanding (or lack of understanding) how the body utilizes each of these three components can be the difference between a lack luster performance and a championship performance.  Today I will focus on Protein and understanding your body’s basic needs for protein intake, digestion and absorption.

Protein is the building block for all the body’s needs. It provides amino acids that allow our body to make muscle, bone, hair, tendons, skin and other tissues.  For high performance athletes, protein is needed to repair and rebuild muscle after intense training.  Protein is not easily stored in the body; therefore, it is essential that athletes get adequate protein in their meals and with high-grade protein supplements.

The recommended amount of protein needed for a performance athlete is 1.2-1.8 grams per 2.2 lbs or 1 kilogram. The average adult needs 0.8 grams per 2.2 lbs or 1 kilogram. So you can see by the above numbers, athletes need to consume a good amount of protein to provide their muscles with the proper tools to repair and rebuild properly.

If you are taking a protein supplement, it should be known that protein supplements taken as a shake for example, tend to pass through the body much quicker than food itself. Hydrolyzyme™ , a Designs for Health enzyme, should be taken to support digestion of the protein supplement and help with the absorption into the body.  Protein absorption is initiated in the stomach, and because liquid supplements spend less time in the stomach, they have less time to be absorbed into the body.

Make sure that you are taking the right amount of protein to make every workout count. The body, especially an athlete’s body, should be given the right fuel in order to perform at its best.  Call 617-666-1122 or email ryan@totalwellcoach.com to set up a consultation.  Visit TotalWellCoach.com to learn more.
