Many popular diets incorporate plenty of protein during lunch and dinner, leaving breakfast lacking in this muscle-building, satiating nutrient. This unbalanced intake won't feed hardworking muscles, nor will it perform the job of helping curb those late-morning hunger pangs.
Plus, our bodies have a limited capacity to store excess dietary protein from a single meal. In other words, your steak dinner isn't going to help with building muscle the next morning. The solution: Amp up that morning protein. While eggs are the most likely choice, many other high-quality protein options can turn your a.m. meal into a tempting treat.
