Does a bigger protein meal mean longer duration release of aminos?
We've probably all read or heard the mantra that protein doesn't get stored and thus you need to replenish protein levels every 3 hours to keep your body anabolic, or at the least, anti-catabolic....
I've searched for an answer to this question on the web with so far no success:
Q. Instead of consuming say a 30g protein meal every 3 hours to get your protein levels for the day, what if you had a 60g serve of protein in one meal. Would that mean you could effectively go twice as long before having to consume protein again and still stay nitrogen positive?
Or, would that provide a bigger surge of nitrogen for the same 3 hours?
Or, does your body simply do away with the excess and turn it into urea (or fat)?
