Consuming a high protein breakfast has been shown to have a positive effect on regulation of blood sugar throughout the day. It’s not necessary to consume breakfast as soon as you awake, but when you do having upwards of 20-30 grams of protein in combination with carbohydrates, fat, and fibre you can help increase your chances of weight loss on the scale while still maintaining muscle mass. Increased muscle mass on the body is, as we know, the only permanent way to increase your metabolism.
