Obese women on a low energy rice and bean diet: effects of leucine, arginine or glycine supplementation on protein turnover
Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research
This study examined if leucine, arginine or glycine supplementation in adult obese patients (body mass index of 33 ± 4 kg/m 2 ) consuming a Brazilian low energy and protein diet (4.2 MJ/day and 0.6 g protein/ kg) affects protein and amino acid metabolism. After four weeks adaptation to this diet, each subject received supplements of these amino acids (equivalent to 0.2 g protein kg -1 day -1 ) in random order. On the seventh day of each amino acid supplementation, a single-dose 15 N-glycinedoi:10.1590/s0100-879x2001001000007 pmid:11593302 fatcat:jijgkv7srbhydhguqe52w7fhi4
