Another HIt against post exercise protein requirements and supplements
As if you had not heard this before here, this abstract from an article titled “Resistance Training Reduces Fasted- and Fed-State Leucine Turnover and Increases Dietary Nitrogen Retention in Previously Untrained Young Men” in the Journal of Nutrition establishes in young, untrained men that the retention of nitrogen (a measure of protein or muscle) is altered by intense work outs to favor protein retention. Feeding does little to alter the balance of protein wastage versus protein retention. Why? Evolution designed our regulatory mechanisms to conserve protein through many mechanisms I have mentioned over the years on this blog. Our ancestors did not have supplements, yet they were as muscular as any one of us should be in a healthy state.
From the abstract:
Nitrogen balance was more positive after training (13.7 ± 8.1 vs. 33.4 ± 12.5 g/(kg LBM · d), P < 0.01) indicating an increased retention of dietary nitrogen. Intense resistance training alters whole body protein kinetics in novice weightlifters regardless of feeding status. The increase in nitrogen balance after training demonstrates a more efficient utilization of dietary nitrogen, suggesting that protein requirements for novice weightlifters are not elevated.
Note that the authors did not distinguish between nitrogen retention with respect to feeding, because there was no difference. So, why would you drink a protein drink laden with simple carbs after a workout? You shouldn’t. Heavy workouts will increase your appetite and food intake, but over a course of days and weeks. There is no immediate “window” for growth; it is a longer term adaptation. And growth is over rated. You want to be muscular and lean, not smooth and a bit over weight. Supplements will promote the latter, not the healthier and more functional former.

Our anscestors had enough healthy muscle yah, but were bodybuilders we don't want to look like our anscestors, we are capable of gaining much more mass... how do we do it, we supplement our diet.
And who says you can't be bigger and leaner using nutritional supplementation. This is just a dumbass comment. This person is obviously against having the extra lean mass that most bodybuilders enjoy. Extra mass may not always be functional but it gives us the look we are trying to attain.Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug
