Protein at Breakfast Promotes More Muscle Growth than Protein at Dinner

According to a new study, conducted by researchers from Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, consuming protein at breakfast promotes muscle growth more than consuming protein later during the day.Protein at Breakfast Promotes More Muscle Growth than Protein at Dinner

For the study, a team of scientists fed two groups of laboratory mice protein in the form of a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) supplements either at breakfast or at dinner. At breakfast, the protein constituted 8.5% of the meal they consumed, while at dinner, they consumed a higher percentage of protein at 11.5%. Still, researchers noted that muscle growth was greater in the mice who ate protein in the morning.

The lead author of the study Prof. Shigenobu Shibata says: “For humans, in general, the protein intake at breakfast averages about 15 grams (g), which is less than what we consume at dinner, which is roughly 28 g. Our findings strongly support changing this norm and consuming more protein at breakfast or morning snack time.”
