According to my health nutrition and food professor, he says that “high-protein diets do not enhance muscle development in individuals who work out a lot”. This was the answer to a true or false question given in class. This literally goes against everything I’ve learned in my gym experience, and i’m 99% sure he’s incorrect. Can someone please explain this to me?

There is a wealth of studies linking protein intake with hypertrophy.

Get googling.

If someone is meeting their protein needs, ingesting more protein doesn't necessarily promote more muscle growth. It's not a great question, but one i'd expect from an entry-level nutrition course. It's just a broad overview.
