Assignment 2 – Protein (20 pts total)
Remember that you are using the same “athlete” for the entire course over 5 discussions and 4 assignments to build your final client report. This week’s practical application will focus on protein and next week the same subject will be observed for fats. Make sure that you check feedback on each assignment so that accurate information is recorded into your final summary report for your athlete.
For this assignment:
Report your athlete’s height, weight, and activity level (PA)* (typical amount and type of exercise (intensity, duration and type specifying as strength/power, endurance, recreational athlete) (4 pts).
*You will need to determine your Physical activity (PA) level and energy requirements using the ACSM/ADA position stand “Nutrition and Athletic Performance” (figure 2). The PA value should reflect recommended energy intake for type of athlete.
Based on this information, cite and show your work for all calculations a-d below/round all values to nearest whole number. Selection of grams should reflect PA and type of athlete as well as match recommendations for nutrient range. Reference (in parentheses) all values with brief explanation supporting your selection for your type of athlete (14 pts):
total kcals needed daily (*calculation from DRI figure 2 stated above)
protein grams recommended for your type of athlete
total grams of protein daily (protein recommended grams x kg body weight)
total kcals of protein daily (total grams x 4 kcals (of protein in each gram)
calculated % of the 100% daily intake (total protein kcals daily/total daily kcals x 100% = daily %); state and reference recommended range for your type of athlete
Two references with complete bibliography listed at the bottom from required reading for recommendations and consensus (2 pts) / drop in the Module 2 assignment dropbox.
this is the instruction for the second page
Points to address in the Module 2 discussion – Protein (20 total points possible):
For this discussion, first, for reference, define your type of athlete (strength/power, endurance, recreational, etc) and recommended daily % for protein. Then, discuss (1) why these % are recommended, (2) what nitrogen balance (negative and/or positive) is and why it is important to your athlete, and (3) if the protein requirement change if a person was in a 500-1000 calorie daily deficit attempting to loose body weight.
12pts with in-text citations
Reference list (required text reading, additional position paper, and 1 additional primary research articles that support your post)- 4 pts.
1 peer interaction with similar client profile which addresses the material – 4 pts.
Again, be specific in regards to your type of athlete, and remember, you need to discuss the current research as opposed to merely answering the question).
