About

Eggs may be a viable alternative to various types of supplemental proteins given its similar ratings on various measures of dietary protein quality. The investigators hypothesis is that whole eggs would create a greater improvement in skeletal regulatory markers, hormonal responses and body composition than egg white ingestion in resistance-trained men.

Full description

The aim of this investigation was to compare the effects of whole egg versus egg white ingestion (daily and after training sessions) during 12 weeks of resistance training on skeletal muscle regulatory markers, hormonal responses and body composition in resistance-trained men. Specific aims of the study are to: To investigate the extent to which both whole egg and egg white ingestion will improve anabolic factors, fat free mass, fat mass and decrease catabolic markers after 12 weeks of resistance training in resistance-trained men.
