<ul><li><p>TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21</p><p>Poster Session: Wellness and Public HealthDietary Protein Intake and Protein Supplement Use of United States Army Special OperationsCommand Operators</p><p>Author(s): R.A. Baker1, K. Beals1, M.E. Darnell1, J.P. Abt1, T.C. Sell1, S.F. Kane2, J.S. Morgan2,P.J. Benson2, S.M. Lephart1; 1Univ. of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, 2US Army SpecialOperations Command, Fort Bragg, NC</p><p>Learning Outcome: Participants will gain knowledge and information regarding ArmySpecial Operators dietary protein intake and protein supplement use.</p><p>The desire to gain lean muscle mass is a common body composition goal of United StatesArmy Special Operations Command (USASOC) Operators. Sports nutrition guidelinesrecommend dietary protein intake of 1.2-1.7g/kg/day for resistance-trained athletes. Inaccordance with the Department of Defenses Operation Supplement Safety campaign,Dietitians advocate Operators take a food first approach instead of using dietarysupplements.</p><p>Purpose: To assess the number of USASOC Operators taking protein supplements andwhether or not protein needs are met through diet alone.</p><p>Methods: A total of 91 USASOC Operators (age: 29.16.5yrs, height: 70.52.8cm, weight:81.49.7kg, body fat: 15.95.3%) completed a 24-hr dietary recall and nutrition historyquestionnaire. Dietary intake was analyzed using an automated self-administered 24-hourdiet recall.</p><p>Results: Protein intake was 13759g/day. Protein requirements were met or exceededthrough diet alone in 79% of Operators, of these, 42% reported protein supplement use.Dietary protein recommendations were not met in 21% of Operators, of these 42% indi-cated taking a protein supplement.</p><p>Conclusion: The majority of USASOC Operators are consuming adequate dietary protein topromote lean muscle gains with strength-training. Exceeding the recommended range forprotein, has not been shown to promote further gains in muscle size/strength, and maylead to undesirable weight gain if caloric needs are surpassed. Consuming protein sup-plements raises safety concerns, potentially exposing Operators to harmful ingredients inunknown amounts. Nutrition education focused on high quality protein foods properlytimed throughout the day may decrease reliance on protein supplements and provide asafer alternative.

Avery, E. Brown, C.B. Hollenbeck, L. McProud; Nutrition, FoodScience, and Packaging, San Jose State Univ., San Jose, CA</p><p>Learning Outcome: Readers will be able to communicate the dietary in-adequacies, prevalence of disordered eating risk, and the gaps in nutritionknowledge within recreational female marathon runners, with respect toboth fast-pace and slow-pace runners.</p><p>Dietary intake of female athletes is often reported as suboptimal, and hasbeen attributed to numerous factors that affect food choice, but primarily tolow nutrition knowledge and disordered eating (DE). Few studies have beenconducted with recreational female marathon runners despite the growingpopularity of the sport. This study assessed dietary intake, nutrition knowl-edge, and risk of DE within this population, both as a group and with respectto athletic performance. In 60 adult females training for a marathon, diet andexercise, DE risk, and nutrition knowledge were assessed with a 7-day dietand exercise journal, the EAT-26 screening tool, and a 76-question knowledgetest, respectively. Inadequate caloric and carbohydrate intake were present in43 and 36 individuals, respectively (72% and 60% of group), however, car-bohydrate intake was significantly higher in fast-pace runners (5.8 g/kg) thanin slow-pace runners (4.9 g/kg). Risk of DE was identified in 18 individuals(30% of group). Mean nutrition knowledge score was 74%9 but knowledgewas high regarding hydration and the importance of iron to athlete health.Knowledge was low regarding heme vs. non-heme iron, dietary fat re-quirements, and athletic fueling. However, fast-pace runners better under-stood athletic fueling than slower runners. In conclusion, this population hasinadequate caloric and carbohydrate intake, risk of DE is prevalent, andnutrition knowledge is fair. Faster pace is associated with better dietaryintake and knowledge of athletic fueling.</p><p>Funding Disclosure: Circle of Friends Molly and Gene Rauen EndowedResearch Assistance FundSeptember 2014 Suppl 2Abstracts Volume 114 Number 9Nutrition Content of NCCA Personal Fitness Trainer Certification Curriculums</p><p>Author: S. Brust; Dietetics and Nutrition, Florida Intl. Univ., Miami, FL</p><p>Learning Outcome: The participant should be able to explain that not allaccredited personal trainer curriculums provide the same nutrition contentand that some of the information does not align with AND recommendations.</p><p>Research Objective: Personal Fitness Trainers (PFTs) are exercise specialists buttheir clients may also consider them as a source for food and nutrition in-formation. No studies have investigated the curriculum of accredited PFTorganizations to evaluate their nutrition content (NC). Therefore, the purposeof this study was to investigate the NC based on the following topics: mac-ronutrients, micronutrients, foods, hydration, weight management, supple-mentation and scope of practice (SOP).</p><p>Methods: A rubric was developed to evaluate the qualitative and quantitativeNC of eleven accredited programs. Five criteria were used in the evaluation:Identified Learning Objectives, Accuracy of Information, Currency of Information,Coverage and Depth of the Nutrition Topics and Organization and Presentation ofMaterial. The mean score for these criteria gave an overall NC rating for eachPFT certification: 1-1.66weak, 1.67-2.33moderate, 2.34-3strong.Results: NC was present in 91% of the curriculums. Three curriculums scoredweak ratings, three moderate ratings, and five strong ratings. Weight man-agement content was present in 91% of the curriculums but none matchedANDs recommendation for weight loss. Only 45% of the PFT certifying or-ganizations had SOP that specifically addressed PFTs role in providingnutrition information, assessment, counseling, MNT, meal planning, energyintake, or collaboration with an RD.</p><p>Conclusion: NC was not consistent in quantity and quality among PFT certi-fication curriculums, indicating that quality of training is not standard. Waysneed to be identified to develop greater collaboration among nutrition andfitness professionals to ensure that accurate nutrition information is availableto all.</p><p>Funding Disclosure: NoneEffectiveness of KidQuest, an In-Classroom Nutrition and Physical ActivityProgram, on Physical Activity Behaviors of Middle School Youth</p><p>Author(s): M.

KidQuest wasdelivered for one hour, once per week, for six consecutive weeks. Before andafter program implementation, male (n6) and female (n16) students ages12-13, wore an ActiGraph GT3X+ accelerometer, on the dominant wrist, for24 hours per day over the course of five consecutive days. ActiLife 6 analysissoftware was used to configure the accelerometers and download andanalyze the physical activity intensity data collected by the devices. Toexamine how the KidQuest intervention influenced the subjects physicalactivity levels, 4 paired sample t-tests were performed with a Bonferronicorrection to adjust the p-value (p &lt; 0.0125). There were no significantdifferences found in the mean time spent between pre-light and post-light,pre-moderate and post-moderate, pre-vigorous and post-vigorous, and pre-moderate vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and post-MVPA. In conclusion,based on our findings, curriculum changes to include additional physicalactivity education and activities, may be important in order to promotephysical activity behavior change. Following curriculum changes, furtherresearch should include a control group, and should be done to determine theeffectiveness of KidQuest on physical activity behavior change.</p><p>Funding Disclosure: USDA-AFRI Grant No.2011-67002-30202JOURNAL OF THE ACADEMY OF NUTRITION AND DIETETICS A-93</p><p>Dietary Protein Intake and Protein Supplement Use of United States Army Special Operations Command OperatorsLearning OutcomePurposeMethodsResultsConclusionFunding Disclosure</p><p>An Assessment of Nutrition Knowledge and Dietary Intakes of Recreational Female Marathon RunnersLearning OutcomeFunding Disclosure</p><p>Nutrition Content of NCCA Personal Fitness Trainer Certification CurriculumsLearning OutcomeResearch ObjectiveMethodsResultsConclusionFunding Disclosure</p><p>Effectiveness of KidQuest, an In-Classroom Nutrition and Physical Activity Program, on Physical Activity Behaviors of Middl ...Learning OutcomeFunding Disclosure</p></li></ul>
