HIGHER PROTEIN DIETS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH HIGHER HDL CHOLESTEROL AND LOWER BMI AND WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE – 2015


Stefan M Pasiakos5, Harris R Lieberman5, Victor L Fulgoni III
BACKGROUND
– Protein intake above the RDA reduces cardiometabolic risk in overweight and obese adults during weight loss
– However, the cardiometabolic consequences of consuming higher-protein diets in free-living adults have not been determined
OBJECTIVE:
– Examine usual protein intake [g/kg body weight (BW)] patterns stratified by weight status and their associations with cardiometabolic risk
CONCLUSIONS
– Americans who consume dietary protein between 1.0 and 1.5 g/kg BW potentially have a lower risk of developing cardiometabolic disease
