Results: Eighty three participants completed the intervention (HP-D ¼ 34, HP-S ¼ 26, TP ¼ 23). Strength increased in all treatment groups, but the increase was significantly less in HP-S compared with HP-D and TP (p ¼ 0.006; HP-S, 63.0 ± 23.8%; HP-D, 92.1 ± 40.8%; TP, 92.3 ± 35.4%). There was no difference between HP-D and TP (p ¼ 0.99). Lean body mass increased and fat mass decreased (p ¼ 0.006), with no differential effect between any treatments (p ¼ 0.06). Conclusions: Increased intake of
