Protein Entertaining arithmetic

People who are not involved in sports, requires a much smaller amount of protein than the athletes. Men will be sufficient 70 g per day, or about 1 g protein per 1 kg. For athletes, the case a little more complicated:
1. Trained men who have power of sports, daily need of 1.2 grams of protein per 1 kg.
2. Beginners in power sports daily should take approximately 1.7 grams of protein per 1 kg.
3. With less load requires about 1.2 grams of protein per 1 kg weight (if the athlete over a period of 45-60 minutes 4-5 times a week).
4. Exercise, which - the restoration of form, will require approximately 0,80-1,0 g protein per 1 kg.
5. For intensive courses in football, basketball, climbing competitions and endurance you need 1,3-1,5 g of protein per 1 kg.
6. Women are required for approximately 15% less protein (suddenly your friend useful).
Thus, if you will, for example, bodybuilder just started this sport, and your weight 80 kg, you will need 80 x 1.7 = 136 grams of protein a day. But if you're not a newcomer, this figure will decrease: 80 x 1.2 = 96 g.
The more protein, the better?
Experts in the field of sports nutrition believe that the use of up to 2 grams of protein per 1 kg of their weight should not harm the health of athletes (if not those high in fat in the blood, diabetes or kidney disease). More than 2 grams of protein per day is dangerous for the following reasons:
1. Most of protein food meant food of animal origin, which, in turn, contains a large amount of animal fats (saturated fats and cholesterol), which can raise blood lipids and to be a cause of heart disease and cancer.
2. Housecleaning (proteins and protein - the same thing) diet leads to more intense release of calcium through the kidneys, thus may have kidney stones and osteoporosis.
3. If the human body is sensitive to changes in diet, a large number of proteins can lead to kidney disease.
4. Scientists also found that the abuse of protein food can damage the liver. Therefore, if a bank with sports food additives indicated «one teaspoon per day», should not eat soup spoon, hoping for better results. Such an approach will only lead to poor health. Just remember that the consumption of protein needed to limit your natural need for it, and no problems will be. And it is important to remember that it is not necessary to postpone the visit to the doctor, because only a good specialist can recommend the correct treatment and a healthy drug.
