You got me at the word better…damn.
Although I do recall Brad Pilon (I believe it was) reviewing a study on GH an Insulin interaction, amidst of all the technical words and pretty diagrams, I recall him saying that GH’s effect is hindered when Insulin levels are raised.
I don’t see why BCAA’s, Leucine, or any other insulinogenic products wouldn’t do the same (Hence why I have stopped having Cottage cheese prior to sleep)
In all honesty, I really think that the eating immediately before sleep and mid-way through the night is kinda overrated. I have had better body recomposition since ditching the Cottage cheese with casein and PB before bed and reparitioning the calories peri-workout.
Search is a fail, but the info silverhydra described (and way you came about it) agrees with what I recall as well. I hope that helps/ed.
