It seems to be the trend that athletes, particularly those in strength and body building activities, are concerned about their protein intake. Some individuals feel an increased protein intake is necessary in order to effectively increase muscle mass. In this Discussion, sift through literature to determine the optimal dietary protein requirements for athletes at various levels of strength training; that is, from the average person striving to be physically fit to the professional body builder.
Be sure to include in your thread well-thought-out explanations to the following questions, based on current literature:
- Do athletes focusing on strength and body building exercise need extra protein in their diets? Will increased protein intake facilitate or expedite building muscle?
- What is the recommended protein intake for individuals at various levels of strength and body building?
- Is there harm in consuming “too much” protein and, if so, what is considered “too much”?
- What other dietary factors are important for athletes to consider for proper muscle building?
- Did the original vegetarian diet that God gave humans in the Garden of Eden provide enough protein for maintaining or increasing muscle mass?
