Protein needs are higher for athletes and active individuals than non-athletes, but how much protein does an athlete really need? This presentation will summarize current evidence on amino acid and protein requirements for athletes and active individuals, with a focus on meal protein intake and timing to support maximal lean mass gains (hypertrophy), to optimize recovery, and to maintain lean mass during weight loss.
About the Speaker: Daniel Moore, PhD, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education, University of Toronto
After graduating with his PhD from the Department of Kinesiology at McMaster University in 2009, Dr. Moore joined the Nestle Research Centre in Lausanne Switzerland as an R&D Scientist within the Physical Performance and Mobility Group. Dr. Moore returned to academia in 2012 as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at Guelph University and joined the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Toronto as an Assistant Professor in 2013. His current research focuses on how exercise and nutrition independently and synergistically remodel skeletal muscle to provide a better understanding into how recovery from and adaptation to training can be optimized. Dr. Moore has published over 60 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters and is a past recipient of the Peter J. Reeds. Young Investigator Award from the American Society for Nutrition for his research on protein metabolism.
