A lot of diets skew protein consumption toward the evening meal, leaving breakfast lacking in this essential muscle-building, satiating nutrient. This unbalanced intake doesn’t quite give the hardworking muscles all they need, nor does it perform the job of helping curb appetite throughout the day.
Furthermore, 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 protein in the morning (and throughout the day). And while eggs are the most likely choice, there are many other high-quality protein options that you can enjoy to keep all your daytime meals interesting.
