Power of Protein: Quality and Quantity in Healthy Eating Patterns
Emerging research has demonstrated the benefits of eating higher protein diets (within the context of the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range), particularly related to sports nutrition, weight management and healthy aging. Evolving science is also beginning to examine the effects of protein quality and timing to help further refine practical recommendations to optimize consumption.
Learn about the current protein recommendations and research examining the impact of protein quantity and quality on various health outcomes, as well as unique culinary applications to help maximize high-quality protein in the meals and snacks people enjoy.
Weighing In: Protein for Weight Management
Evolving science has shown that the introduction of higher protein diets, that including high quality proteins, may help consumers meet healthier lifestyle goals. Combined with reduced calorie intake, a higher protein diet may help support weight management and improvements in body composition (e.g. loss of body fat and/or preservation of muscle).
Learn about the latest research on the benefits of following a higher protein diet for weight management and discover practical tips and ideas to help bring the science to life.
Aging and Muscle Loss: Too Young to Worry? Think Again!
Sarcopenia, the age-related loss of muscle mass and function, is often considered an issue for the elderly, but this progressive process can begin much earlier in life. In fact, sarcopenia is defined by approximately 3-8% reduction in lean muscle mass per decade after 30 years of age! Understanding the importance of early interventions to maintain muscle mass and strength through nutrition and exercise may help people stay active longer in life.
Learn about the latest research on sarcopenia and protein’s role in muscle building and maintenance, as well as dietary and exercise approaches for middle-aged Americans.
