Building lean muscle helps increase bone density, manage weight, decrease risk of chronic disease, and improve quality of life.
Muscles act as an “engine” that burns calories, even at rest. In fact, for every pound of muscle you gain, your body uses about 50 extra calories a day.You must not be afraid of getting stronger and developing muscle. As a matter of fact, one of your goals should be to increase or maintain.
Protein consumption helps build lean body mass. Diurnal rhythm controls how protein is converted into muscle mass. We are hardwired metabolically to expend most energy in daylight hours.
Protein at breakfast has thought to activate your body’s satiety system, meaning that you’re more likely to feel fuller longer after your meal, but protein does more than just that. It helps you maintain lean muscle and achieve better blood sugar control during the day – better than if you started your day with a lower protein breakfast, like cereal, or skipped it entirely.
