Protein before bed, yes. Protein with everymeal, so that one is easy. The reason I eat protein before bed is because I eat protein (meals) frequently throughout the day and my last one falls right before bed, so I don’t go starving as I’m trying to fall asleep.
Your body is fasting over night, it would probably be in your best interest to have some protein in you for your body to use.
Meats or eggs? Why not? What ever you want. I personally have eggs or a shake (met.drive) with peanut butter or fishoil pre bed.
Carbs before bed? Depends. Are you bulking up or cutting down? If bulking up, I don’t see why not as long as that meal fits into your plan. While cutting down, the only problem I see with it is your carbs would most likely be limited.
With that said, why waste some carbs pre bed when you can use them at better times during the day when you would probably feel better eating them afterwards.
For example, If your only eating 150grams of carbs you’re most likely to eat them earlier on to have energy for the day and your workout. Why save them to eat them and then sleep. Seems silly to me.[/quote]
Im still confused because im under the impression that carbs before bed will become fat but thats only from what I read in some places some books and articles say otherwise
My own personal hypothesis is: Im thinking to myself based on the factor of the human bodies natural metabolic rate it would burn the calories of the carbs throughout the night as an energy source and use the protein to repair damaged tissue only?
What you guys think about this hypothesis?
