Dietary intake, plasma lipids, lipoprotein and apolipoprotein levels, anthropometric measurements and anaerobic performance were studied in eleven judo athletes during a period of weight maintenance (T1) and after a 7d food restriction (T2). Dietary data were collected using a 7-day diet record. Nutrient analysis indicated that these athletes followed a low carbohydrate diet whatever the period of the investigation. Moreover, mean micronutrient intakes were below the French recommendations…

Food restriction, performance, biochemical, psychological, and endocrine changes in judo athletes.

The results suggest that the combination of energy restriction and intense exercise training, which causes weight reduction before a competition, adversely affects the physiology and psychology of judo athletes and impairs physical performance before the competition.

Caloric Restriction Effect on Proinflammatory Cytokines, Growth Hormone, and Steroid Hormone Concentrations during Exercise in Judokas

The results showed that CR resulted in significant decreases in body weight and performance, however, heart rate and SJFT index increase significantly during CR in comparison to baseline, and exercise leads to a significant increase in testosterone, cortisol, growth hormone (GH), leukocytes, neutrophils, TNF-α, and IL-6, in both CR and baseline conditions.

Effects of caloric restriction on anthropometrical and specific performance in highly-trained university judo athletes

Purpose:The purpose of this study was to determine the ultimate body mass, performance, and nutritional characteristics of the Algerian judo junior athletes, and also analysing the impact of

Lipid profiles of judo athletes during Ramadan.

The present results show that the combination of the change in diet pattern during Ramadan, along with intense exercise training, induced a significant decrease in body mass associated with a reduction in body fat and changes in some of the serum lipids and lipoproteins.

An evaluation of diets in the Polish national judo team during the pre-competition weight loss period

It was found that judoists consumed less energy, carbohydrate, fat, water, potassium, calcium, iron, iodine, vitamin: D, C, E, B2 compare to recommended norm, and dietary intake of sodium, phosphorus,itamin: B3, B6, B12 was significantly higher than recommended norm.

Food restriction alters salivary cortisol and α-amylase responses to a simulated weightlifting competition without significant performance modification

Results may indicate that dietary reduction led to a dissociation of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis and the sympatho- adreno-medullary system, which could impair training adaptations and absolute performance development.

Adverse effects of energy restriction on myogenic enzymes in judoists

The results suggest that energy restriction in addition to intense exercise training before major competition has an adverse effect on anaerobic power and elevates serum creatine kinase concentration, leading to an impairment of muscular function and an increased susceptibility of muscle tissue to injury.

Effects of pre-competitional rapid weight loss on nutrition, vitamin status and oxidative stress in elite boxers

Findings indicate a low-caloric and low-carbohydrate diet in elite boxers, regardless of participating in rapid weight loss or not, and apparently the pre-competitional malnutitrition in the Weight Loss Group did not induce alterations in the vitamin and glutathione status.



Lipoprotein profile, diet and body composition in athletes practicing mixed an anaerobic activities.

The data suggest that in healthy lean normolipemic males, the lipoprotein profile is not modified by mixed or anaerobic sport activities and the respective modifications in body composition and diet.

During periods of endurance training when energy requirements are high, increasing the percentage of fat in the diet to approximately 50% of total energy did not result in adverse changes to the plasma lipoprotein profiles of this group of athletes.

Weight regulation practices in athletes: analysis of metabolic and health effects.

A theory is presented which relates these weight patterns and the accompanying dietary habits to changes in body composition, metabolism, metabolic activity of adipose tissue, and the distribution of body fat.

The micronutrient status of 12 obese male subjects was evaluated before and after a 14-week period of a low energy diet with or without an exercise treatment and only the decrease in ferritin was significantly different between D and DE.

Changes in Psychological State and Self‐Reported Diet During Various Phases of Training in Competitive Bodybuilders

This study monitored psychological state, diet, and body composition of male and female bodybuilders (BB) as they prepared for a state championship. Psychological tests administered over 12 weeks

Effect of weight loss and refeeding diet composition on anaerobic performance in wrestlers.

In conclusion, weight loss by energy restriction significantly reduced anaerobic performance of wrestlers and those on a high carbohydrate refeeding diet tended to recover their performance while Those on a moderate carbohydrate diet did not.

Lipid and lipoprotein levels in athletes in different sports disciplines

It is concluded that athletes have a lipid profile that may be protective against the development of atherosclerosis and high levels of HDL-C characterizes the athletes who practice an aerobic physical activity.

Effect of a precompetition bodybuilding diet and training regimen on body composition and blood chemistry.

Substantial changes in body composition and blood chemistry suggest adequate nutrition be ensured, and caution taken to avoid excessive physiologic stresses on the body during precompetition diet and training.

Fat metabolism during exercise: a review--part III: effects of nutritional interventions.

At present, fat supplementation in the hours preceding to or during exercise (either long chain or medium chain triacylglycerols) cannot be recommended and from a health perspective, caution should be exercised when recommending high-fat diets to athletes.
