Where’d you get that last bit of info about protein supplements? Your metabolism slows down at night, but still operates. It doesn’t shut down and automatically shuttle anything you eat into fat stores. I had this very same question a few weeks ago, so I’ll just make it simple for you and give you a direct answer. Drink a Casein protein shake right before you go to bed.
I Googled NPMC and got it from a web site that was selling something… Sorbitol PM or something like that for women. The info seemed to jive with other things I heard.
But anyway cassein it is then! I’ll try it! Thanks dude!
And a huge thank you to all who replied
I just did a quick search to see what you were talking about and came across this link -
“That?s because high-tech protein compounds, by their very nature, have been designed and developed for rapid absorption. These highly specialized ?workout? proteins, while effective in enhancing muscle growth when used just before and just after strength training, can?t help you overcome sleep-induced muscle catabolism because they?re assimilated so quickly that their protein is rapidly used up after only the first few short minutes of sleep? leaving nothing for your body to use as ?muscle-building blocks? during the most productive period of ?Delta? (slow-wave) sleep, when 90% of your body?s growth hormone is released. Waking up in the middle of the night (after your initial growth-hormone spike) to down some ?high-tech? protein mix simply adds additional calories that are converted to fat.”
They are just being equivicol to market their product lol. By “workout” protein, hey are obviously referring to whey protein, which is not good before bed and not a good anti-catabolic period. I’m 99% sure that main sorce of protein they use in their product is casein, however, you see the lengths they go to avoid any mention of casein -
“scientifically developed compound”
“exclusive, ?slow-assimilating? protein”
“dvanced, clinically proven compound”
LOL screw these corporate shills and just get a can of Casein protein for 25 dollars.
