In certain circumstances, insulin may blunt GH release, whilst in others, it may slightly enhance it.
For example, glucose/simple sugars taken during exercise will affect GH release, post exercise.
However, the effects on GH are small, so you are not going to significantly effect your night-time GH spikes by having some foot before bed.
Besides, most food will be digested with in 2 hours and it’s going to take at least that long before you achieve your GH release sleep phase I think.
But as an aside, yes, caesin can be ‘bad’, because the gel-like plug it forms in your intestines inhibits proper absorbtion of other nutrients, resulting in a case of obstructive diarhea and a very loose morning stool.
I have a kind of gay-love of casein before bed, and I haven’t noticed shitty sleep from it (then again, I haven’t slept much for the last 3 weeks anyway). What nutrients would one be blocking if the took casein before bed, assuming they hadn’t eaten much prior to that? Just curious if the pros outweigh the cons in my case[/quote]
If you wake up in the middle of the night, after taking pre-bed casein, with a distended abdomen where there was none before. If your first crap of the day is a little rock of hard stuff, followed by a trickle, squirt or flow of brownish goo, then caesin is not for you.
Those are the symptoms I had. However if you get on fine with casein, then keep taking it, by all means.
I have normal solid stool lol, thankfully no GI distress or “squirts” as you put it. No bloated feeling ever, I just feel satisfied - idk, I guess I just take it well and I’m glad it won’t dick around with my GH levels. I figured that guy was a crackpot, but just double checking. Thanks BBB
