The Best Damn Protein Book Ever!

April 12, 2012 10:06 am 0 comments

Dietary supplement companies and the food industry spend millions to reach resistance trainers—often with exaggerated marketing messages—while health practitioners continue to counsel athletes that their interest in protein is misguided and even dangerous. There appears to be a disconnect between scientists and almost everyone else in sports nutrition. With so much conflicting information, it’s difficult to know who to believe. With contributions from the world’s foremost experts, Dietary Protein and Resistance Exercise delivers the uncut scientific truth about the role of dietary protein in the well-being of athletes.

Updating and clarifying the issues surrounding purposeful protein intake and resistance trainers, this volume:

  • Reviews the science-related history of protein and its consumption among strength athletes
  • Analyzes the mechanisms behind what proteins do in muscle cells
  • Describes protein’s effect on performance, recovery, and body composition
  • Explores various populations that actively employ resistance training and dietary protein
  • Discusses timing, type, and safety data regarding liberal protein diets and related supplements
  • Includes sidebars, practical examples, and case studies—translating the science into a practical understanding of various protein-related topics

Separating fact from fiction and providing the hard science behind the numbers, this volume demonstrates how changes in dietary protein intake may lead to measurable improvements in body composition, energy levels, and athletic performance.

    Whey Protein Reinvented With AMINOGEN®

    Back in the dark ages of sports nutrition, single source whey protein was considered fairly standard and effectively the same no matter which brand you used. Over time differences developed in quality, amino acid profiles as well as flavouring and colouring as better manufacturing processes were developed. But it seems it’s in 2014 when we see the standardisation of single source whey protein become a thing of the past. Pioneered by innovative sports nutrition brand THE PROTEIN WORKS™, they have […]

    Brown rice protein: for your digestive and athletic needs

    By Scarlett Blandon, MS RDN.  Unless you were a vegan (or a yogi…or maybe a protein powder junky) the chances of you knowing about brown rice protein are slim to none.  Rice protein is a novel source of protein derived from the entire rice grain (including bran layer), and is available as a concentrate or isolate just like other protein powders.  It offers several benefits that other protein powders do not, but chances are those merits have been drowned out […]

    Do You Have to “Suffer” While Dieting?

    Why is it that when it comes to dieting, everybody automatically thinks they have to suffer and deprive themselves from everything in life? Why is it that people think they can’t have the foods they love and crave in moderation? Why does the word “dieting” have to be portrayed as suffering? We really don’t have a clear cut answer to this, but we feel a big part has to do with the personality of people feeling like they need to […]
