There is no universal answer to this particular question since everybody’s protein needs vary. Protein requirements vary depending on an individual’s age, gender, weight, medical conditions and the nature of the workout one does. The first thing to do is to determine your caloric and macronutrient allotments. After calculating the BMR(Basal Metabolic Rate) and applying the Harris-Benedict Principle, one could know how many calories are needed on a daily basis.
Step 1- Calculating BMR:
|Men||BMR=66.4730 + (13.7516 x weight in kg) + (5.0033 x height in cm) – (6.7550 x age in years)|
|Women||BMR = 655.0955 + (9.5634 x weight in kg) + (1.8496 x height in cm) – (4.6756 x age in years)|
Step 2- Applying the Harris-Benedict Principle :
The following table enables the calculation of an individual’s recommended daily calorie intake to maintain optimum weight.
|Little to no exercise||Daily calorie needed =BMRx1.2|
|Light exercise (1-3 days per week)||Daily calorie needed =BMRx1.375|
|Moderate exercise (4-5 days per week)||Daily calorie needed =BMRx1.55|
|Heavy exercise (6-7 days per week)||Daily calorie needed =BMRx1.725|
|Very heavy exercise (twice per day, extra heavy workouts)||Daily calorie needed =BMRx1.9|
The best results can be seen when Whey protein is consumed in the morning, after a workout. If you exercise regularly, it may be best to consume a Whey protein shake immediately following a workout. A report published by the National Strength and Conditioning Association recommends consuming at least 15g of protein after each workout.
Your body is highly sensitive to insulin after exercise and shuttles carbohydrates and proteins into muscle cells instead of fat cells. This sensitivity declines post-workout until ~2 hours at which point it reaches baseline.
Furthermore, the anabolic effects of insulin are synergistic with amino acids. Given the rapid absorption of whey, it is an ideal choice for post-workout to take advantage of the insulin-amino acid synergistic effect.
Storage of the Whey protein under cool and dry place is highly recommended. Whey protein can be denatured by heat or high temperature. Heat-denatured whey can still cause allergies in some people.
No matter which Whey protein you choose, make sure to read the label carefully. It’s also important to talk to your doctor before starting any new supplement or diet program.
With many additional ingredients in all the three Whey proteins, it’s essential to know what your body is able to process or if you have any allergies to certain foods.
- BSA (bovine serum albumin) is thought to be a possible trigger for IDDM. Some studies have found increased levels of anti-BSA antibodies in sera from children developing IDDM. However, other studies have shown no increases in anti-BSA in IDDM children. Thus the exact role of BSA in IDDM development remains unclear.
- Kidney damage. Research does not support the idea of kidney damage. However, some researchers warn against excessive protein intake (>2g/kg of body weight per day).
- Increased risk of dehydration with excess intake of Whey protein.
- Possible risk of calcium loss. Very large amounts of protein intake results in increased acid production. Calcium is released from bone as a buffer for the increased acid load.
These side effects can generally be easily alleviated by monitoring your total protein intake and making sure you are aware of any possible food allergies that you may have. If a nominal dose of Whey protein consistently causes stomach or gastro intestineal issues, consider trying a different Whey protein supplement or adding in a digestive enzyme to take along with it.
