    Cool!!

    People become less active when they get injured or ill. Atrophy (loss of muscle tissue) sets in after only 10 days of inactivity. Protein synthesis, appetite and metabolic rate decrease, while protein breakdown increases. Decreased appetite results in reduced protein intake, which speeds atrophy even further. Athletes experience reduced strength, power and endurance. A review of literature by researchers from Maastricht University in the Netherlands concluded that increasing protein intake during injury, illness or inactivity could slow the rate of muscle atrophy due to deconditioning.
    So, if i'm going to take a week or 10 days rest, will a good idea to consume more protein?
