Higher dietary protein combined with intense exercise promotes lean mass gain

More support for protein supplementation, this time in young men doing both resistance work and high intensity interval training.

Our results showed that, during a marked energy deficit, consumption of a diet containing 2.4 g protein · kg−1 · d−1 was more effective than consumption of a diet containing 1.2 g protein · kg−1 · d−1 in promoting increases in LBM and losses of fat mass when combined with a high volume of resistance and anaerobic exercise.
