Obesity Diminishes Rebuilding of Muscle Tissue Following a Protein-Rich Meal - October 5, 2016 - Medical News BulletinShared by:
Obesity is a major health concern, affecting nearly one-third of adults in the United States alone. It has been established that obesity contributes to many pathologies including cardiovascular disease and altered metabolism. Researchers recently observed that obesity diminishes protein metabolic turnover in skeletal muscles following a protein-rich meal. In other words, excessive fat accumulation diminishes muscle sensitivity to dietary protein intake and results in decreased protein synthesis following meal ingestion. Health care providers should focus on restoring sensitivity of muscles to ingested proteins by encouraging physical exercise prior to meal intakes.
