I do some cycling for exercise, and I found that on HT, I had to up my protein intake or I was burning muscle and putting on fat. (Body composition scales are useful for monitoring this while on HT.)

I increased my chicken and fish (mainly salmon) consumption. (I haven't eaten much red meat for many years.) I also like soya beans (Edamame beans), but increasing those was a disaster for sleeping, as night time turned into non-stop farting, so I continue to eat them at a low level only. They contain flavonoids which act as weak estrogens and may help reduce some of the HT side effects.

I can't say if this is the best way. It may depend why you want to consume more protein. I did try a low sugar protein drink a few times as something to take on a cycle ride, but not enough to know what effect it might have had.
