Nutrition is critical for building and maintaining muscle mass and strength. Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass as we age. Although some loss of strength is normal as we age, we can influence the rate of sarcopenia. Two ways of reducing the rate of sarcopenia are by strength training and by making sure we have an adequate level of protein on a daily basis. According to the Society of Sarcopenia, it is recommended that older adults have 1-1.5 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. For example, a 100 lb person would require between 45-68 grams per day. Ideally, this amount is spread over the course of the day. In this video, I discuss the difference between anabolism and catabolism and why that’s important when learning about sarcopenia. Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks for watching!
