Stop buying excessive protein whey

July 6, 2007

The following key points summarize the current recommendations for  competitive athletes in this position paper.

Protein recommendations for resistance and strength-trained athletes are 1.6 to 1.7 g/kg bodyweight per day. It has been recommended that experienced male bodybuilders and strength athletes consume 1.6 to 1.7 g/kg bodyweight per day to allow for the accumulation and maintenance of lean tissue.

Athletes should be aware that increasing protein intake beyond the recommended levels is unlikely to result in increases in lean tissue

because there is a limit to the rate at which protein tissue can be accrued.
