The purpose of the study was to find out the significant difference between proteins intake per day, carbohydrates intake per day and calories intake` per day during off-season period and on-season period of the state level bodybuilders of Manipur by collecting the data regarding diet and nutrition supplement habits. This study consisted of nineteen (N=19) men state level bodybuilders with different weight categories and different division. The subjects had experience of participating in the state level bodybuilding competitions. In the descriptive analysis, mean, standard deviation and mean difference calculated to determine the amount of dietary intake such as proteins per day, carbohydrates per day and calories per day and Independent‘t’ test is computed on the recorded data. The subjects are categories into four groups according to their weight category and division. Six (N=6) state level bodybuilders from 55kg – 60kg category, three (N=3) state level bodybuilders from 65kg – 70kg category, four (N=4) state level bodybuilders from 75kg – 80kg category and six (N=6) state level bodybuilders from Men’s Physique division. The analysis of the study indicated that the dietary habits and amount of proteins intake, carbohydrates intake and calories intake in a day during off -season and on- season was significantly different. The amount of proteins intake in off- season period is lower than on-season as the on-season period is a cutting phase which the bodybuilders focused to give more muscle definition and losing the fats. So, to improve the muscles quality, it is needed to take more protein in on-season period. And the amount of carbohydrates is lower in on-season period because to achieve the goal of fat loss and defining the muscles, bodybuilders need to decrease the amount of carbohydrates. Thus, the amount of calories intake is higher in off-season and lower in on-season period. From the study it may be concluded that the protein intake during the on-season period was increased while the carbohydrates intake during the on-season period was decreased and calories intake also decreased in the on-season period in order to achieve the goal of fat loss and defining muscles.Pages: 274-275 | 325 Views 74 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
