But new research from #uoftkpe suggests a higher protein intake could also give endurance athletes an edge. Graduate student Eric Williamson and Professor Daniel Moore worked with a group of male runners during a four-day controlled training period, providing the athletes with different amounts of dietary protein. Their findings suggested that that the runners who had a higher protein intake than what is typically consumed among endurance athletes were generally stronger and faster over a five kilometer trial and saw better recovery from exercise. But not all protein sources are created equal. “Athletes relying on a more plant-based protein diet may require a slightly greater intake than what we studied to enhance metabolism and exercise performance during training,” says Daniel Moore. Interested in learning more about the relationship between physical activity and nutrition? Join us on March 5 for a free public symposium on optimizing nutrition through exercise, featuring Moore and other leading experts from the field, including #uoftkpe Prof. Jenna Gillen, Toronto Raptors performance nutritionist Jennifer Sygo, with #UofT alum @harleypasternak as the Master of Ceremonies.
