Building and maintaining muscle mass is important but we don’t overlook the benefits that protein has on our health.
Higher protein diets have shown to improve satiety which has a positive impact on body composition therefore improved markers of health.
Breakfast is one meal that most people struggle with to get a good serving of protein in. Mostly due to the fact that most breakfast items are typically carb heavy - which is good for energy but it’s a different macro altogether and we still need protein.
Pay some attention to your breakfast, plan in a 20-30g protein serving to increase your overall daily protein intake.
It doesn’t have to be complicated - eat a high protein yoghurt after your oats or have a protein shake with some fruit if time is a challenge.
