Eating enough proteins spread among three times daily may boost muscle strength among the elderly, a study has found. Loss of muscle is an inevitable consequence of ageing that can lead to frailty, falls or mobility problems.

Eating enough protein is one way to remedy it, but it would seem that spreading protein equally among the three daily meals could be linked to greater mass and muscle strength in the elderly. Researchers from Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) and Universite de Montreal in Canada examined both the amount of protein consumed and its distribution among people aged 67 and over, using one of the most comprehensive cohort studies in Quebec.
