Guest Bio

Jorn Trommelen

Jorn 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.

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 Episode We Discuss:

  • Jorn’s study: ‘Fructose and Sucrose Intake Increase Exogenous Carbohydrate Oxidation during Exercise’
  • Exogenous carbohydrate oxidation: why is it important for this to be as high as possible?
  • Distinguishing between the amount of exogenous carbohydrates oxidized versus simply the total carbohydrate oxidized in the lab
  • Does pre-sleep protein ingestion impart a benefit?
  • Resistance training performed in the evening could augment the overnight muscle protein synthetic response to pre-sleep protein ingestion
