A High Protein Diet Has No Harmful Effects: A One-Year Crossover Study in Resistance-Trained Males

URL: https://www.hindawi.com/journals/jnme/2016/9104792/

Journal: Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism

 Publication Date: 09/2016

Summary: In male subjects with several years of experience with resistance training, chronic consumption of a diet high in protein had no harmful effects on any measures of health. Furthermore, there was no change in body weight, fat mass, or lean body mass despite eating more total calories and protein.

Higher Protein Intake Is Associated with Higher Lean Mass and Quadriceps Muscle Strength in Adult Men and Women

URL: https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/145/7/1569/4616773

Journal: The Journal of Nutrition

Publication Date: 07/2015

 Summary: Our findings suggest that maintaining adequate protein intake with age may help preserve muscle mass and strength in adult men and women. Dietary protein types may differentially affect muscle mass and strength. Whether PP is a marker of dietary quality or has a direct effect on muscle strength (independent of lean mass) needs to be further clarified.

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4035379/

Journal: American Journal of Medicine

Publication Date: 06/2014

Summary: This study demonstrates the survival predication ability of relative muscle mass and highlights the need to look beyond total body mass in assessing the health of older adults.

Protein-enriched diet, with the use of lean red meat, combined with progressive resistance training enhances lean tissue mass and muscle strength and reduces circulating IL-6 concentrations in elderly women: a cluster randomized controlled trial

URL: https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/99/4/899/4637870

Journal: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Publication Date: 04/2014

Summary: 100 elderly women were randomized to a high protein diet supplemented with lean red meat combined with progressive resistance training versus progressive resistance training with a control diet. Lean tissue mass and strenghth increased more in the meat supplemented group. IGF-1 increase more and IL-6 decreased more in the meat supplemented group

Effects of energy-restricted high-protein, low-fat compared with standard-protein, low-fat diets: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

URL: https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/96/6/1281/4571449

Journal: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Publication Date: 12/2012

Summary: Compared with an energy-restricted SP diet, an isocalorically prescribed HP diet provides modest benefits for reductions in body weight, FM, and triglycerides and for mitigating reductions in FFM and REE.

Increased Consumption of Dairy Foods and Protein during Diet- and Exercise-Induced Weight Loss Promotes Fat Mass Loss and Lean Mass Gain in Overweight and Obese Premenopausal Women

URL: https://academic.oup.com/jn/article/141/9/1626/4630649

Journal: The Journal of Nutrition

 Publication Date: 09/2011

 Summary: diet- and exercise-induced weight loss with higher protein and increased dairy product intakes promotes more favorable body composition changes in women characterized by greater total and visceral fat loss and lean mass gain.

A High-Protein Diet With Resistance Exercise Training Improves Weight Loss and Body Composition in Overweight and Obese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

URL: https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/33/5/969.long

Journal: Diabetes Care

 Publication Date: 05/2010

Summary: A total of 83 men and women with type 2 diabetes were randomly assigned to an isocaloric, energy-restricted diet of either standard carbohydrate or high protein, with or without supervised RT for 16 weeks. An energy-restricted HP diet combined with RT achieved greater weight loss and more favorable changes in body composition. All treatments had similar improvements in glycemic control and CVD risk markers.

Visceral Fat Area and Markers of Insulin Resistance in Relation to Colorectal Neoplasia

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2797970/

Journal: Diabetes Care

 Publication Date: 01/2010

 Summary: These results suggest that visceral adipose tissue accumulation and insulin resistance may promote the development of early-stage cancer but not adenoma in the colorectum.
