Unformatted text preview: Human Nutrition Lecture 5-the rate of which the calories come in and want them to come in at the rate to which the muscles and body will absorb the nutrients Performance Nutrition-open the door as far as possible don’t overflow the door…glucose transporter 4 is the main transporter and you have normal meal=over eating when there is an insulin resistance...shifting calories more towards muscle rather than fat is optimizing recovery-poor diet results in less fuel to: muscles and sub-q fat and more to visceral fat (triglyceride and HDL levels can show whether a person has a good diet)-increasing fat in the diet by 10%...unsaturated fat increases muscle fueling 8.8% and saturated fat reduces muscle fueling by 12.5% -high fat diet: 40% of calories-high protein reduces muscle fueling…doubling amino acids in blood takes whole body glucose uptake by 25% and muscle glucose uptake down by 50-80% and glycogen synthesis by 50%-high: saturated fat…low: unsaturated fat and fish protein=no insulin resistance -high blood sugar=glucosylation of P sites directly contributes to diabetes, alzheimer’s, cancer, leptin...
