How will the women’s body react to diet based on protein?
Based on experiences of girls that exercise and are disciplined in following such a food regime. The result of protein food were until recently a subject of many researches but the first that’s specifically about women was conducted in the university of South Florida, with two group of women which did weight exercises during 8 weeks.
The training program was exactly the same for groups, made from two training weekly for that torso and two for that lower body. The only real difference was the food – one group followed a regime based on more proteins (2,2 grams per kg of body weight per day +25 grams whey protein before and after training), another on less (1,1 grams of protein per bodyweight per day and just 5 grams whey protein pre and post training). The intake of carbs remained to the selection of every participant.
After 8 weeks, the group which had more protein, experienced higher numbers of pure muscle mass (2 kg from the bodyweight) compared to group with less protein (680 grams from the overall body weight). This was an expected derive from such mixture of food and training, but what is one of the most surprising is that the first group consumed additional 42- calories every single day, and they still lost more fat compared to other group.
Keeping in your mind the data from similar research for males, they say that they’ve the foundation for developing a theory that the women’s body reacts a lot more to protein food compared to men’s.
