High-Protein Diet Should Start With Breakfast
People the world over are asking how they can maintain muscle mass, curb hunger, reduce abdominal fat, and prevent age-related bone loss. The Institute of Food Technologies (IFT) has released a study that answers that very question: a high-protein diet, starting with breakfast.
The results of this study were presented at the 2010 IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo. IFT is a nonprofit scientific society. Members include professionals in food science, food technology academia and government. The goal of IFT is to advance the science of food and to ensure a “safe and abundant food supply.” IFT has been working at this for over 70 years in more than 100 countries. IFT has locations in Chicago, Illinois, and Washington, D.C. (source)

High-protein foods to add to your diet include: eggs, milk, meats and fish. Soy and rice are not adequate sources of protein. Continue reading for links to high-protein breakfast recipes.
