In healthy adult men adapted to a diet/exercise regimen for 6 days, the effects of small, frequent meals supplying daily protein intakes of 1 ( n = 8) or 2.5 g ⋅ kg-1 ⋅ day-1( n = 6) on leucine oxidation, urea production, and whole body protein synthesis (PS) and degradation (PD) have been compared with the use of a 24-h continuous intravenous [13C]leucine and [15N,15N]urea infusion protocol. Two 90-min periods of exercise (∼50% maximal O2 consumption) were included during the fasting and the… CONTINUE READING
