Sports Nutrition

From the athletes’ point of view, there is nutrition related to workouts and events, and general nutrition. Nutrition related to workouts and events refers to nutrition before, during, and after workouts and events. It is about pre exercise, during exercise, and post-exercise nutrition. It is mostly about fluids and carbohydrate calories. It is a little about sodium. Of course, caloric mix and quality, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients have important roles to play in general or overall nutrition. There are several major reasons to study interactions between muscle protein interaction during and after exercise and nutrition. Muscle contains a large pro-portion of the total protein in the adult body (40%) and accounts for between one third and one half of all protein turnover in the body. Its total mass and cellular biology are markedly affected by the extent and type of its habitual contractile activity; furthermore, muscle is important not only as a machine for the transduction of chemical energy into mechanical work, but it is also engaged in the diurnal regulation of the ebb and flow of amino acids between the center and the periphery with feeding and fasting, and muscle can be considered to be a store of energy and nitrogen during starvation and disease and after injury.
