Jorn Trommelen earned his MSc in Nutrition and Health with top honors at Wageningen University & Research Centre. He is now pursuing a PhD in Muscle Metabolism at Maastricht University, at one of the leading laboratories in that field. 

His research focusses on protein ingestion to optimize post-exercise muscle protein synthesis. In addition, he investigates carbohydrate metabolism during and after exercise. He also runs the website: Nutritiontactics.

Jorn won several awards for his research including:

  • A Young Investigator Award at the European College of Sport Science Congress in 2015 
  • The GSSI Sport Nutrition Award at the American College of Sports Medicine in 2016
  • The Gail E. Butterfield Nutrition Travel Award at the American College of Sports Medicine in 2016
  • A GSSI Nutrition Award at the European College of Sport Science Congress in 2016 

In this podcast, Jorn and I discussed protein distribution and timing. Some of the topics we cover are:

1.What dose of protein per meal seems to maximise MPS?

2.Does there seem to be any differences in regards to protein quality on MPS response?

3.Does distribution and timing matter or only total protein intake?

4.Pre-bed meals are sometimes overlooked, but there seems to be some benefits to focus specifically on this meal especially in regards to protein source and dosage?

5.Whats the take home message?
