Question from imim
"In planning for nutrition, the general advice calls for 0.5-0.6 (or 0.8) grams protein per lb body weight. That is a finite amount. Do protein requirements change with large caloric needs such as when training volume requires 3-4000+ calories a day? Is that range really enough? At 4000 calories, 0.5g/lb body weight is a small percentage of all caloric needs. I know protein isn't needed so much during workouts and that carbs rule in the high demand days (50-60+%) but the general 40-30-30, or slight variation, ratio is thrown out of whack."

As triathletes, most of us are well informed about the relationship between the effort we put into training, and the outcome: our performance. [.....]
