I am a 20yr old, 200lb strength trainer with a fairly high metabolism. I eat a low carb high protien meal before bed around 10:00pm. Then I wake up to my alarm at 2:30am to take a casien protein shake or other lean protien source. Then I go back to bed until 6am.
I do this to try and keep my body out of starvation mode, keep my metabolism and muscle synthesis going. Hopefully avoid some muscle breakdown. I’m not much of a pro does anyone know if this is actually a good idea or should I try to get a solid night’s sleep.
