I have developed an eating habit and I am wondering if it is truly helping or hindering my gain. When I was trying to gain weight I would eat a large meal in the middle of the night.
Now I am trying to lose fat while maintaining muscle mass so I eat a small snack at 4:00am. I am attempting to keep constant protein available to retain muscle, but does this hinder any fat burning that may take place over night? I take 60-80 grams of casein protein right when I go to sleep.
