not so high fat\protein for optimal athletes performance

Answered on August 19, 2014

to OPTIMIZE the performance of ones explosive training or heavy lifting or even hypertrophy work, eating the lowest amount of protein\fat required(and not being deficient in any way) and filling the rest of the calories with carbs would be logical to me.

what do you all think?

carbs are more for storage energy than function of the body. we function with fat and protein, we refuel with carbs.

Obviously, you're not a golfer.

I'm not sure about the phrasing of "eating the lowest amount of protein\fat required(and not being deficient in any way) and filling the rest of the calories with carbs".

However, I'd agree to something pretty close ... for explosive movement, you need to maximize ATP; for more extended lifting or weights, you need a full tank of glycogen, both liver and muscle. (Fat could/would come into play for extended exercise beyond just weights, but that's not germane to the question at hand.) So, rather than saying "low protein and fat" and "plenty of carbs", I'd say "plenty of meat, probably more lean meats than a non-athlete or supplement with creatine, and eat plenty of starchy and sugary vegetables like sweet potatoes, squash, plantains, beets, parsnips, etc. Pad the diet with SFA/MUFAs as needed for goals - more or less if gaining or cutting."

There's definitely no point in spending extra money for excessive protein - I can definitely agree to that. Fat can definitely be tailored to personal needs, too.

I disagree; fats are invaluable to hormone production and protein is essential to repair a highly active body.
