Non-Lifting Days Nutrition

Hey everyone,
Do you think it is necessary to still have the usual pre-bed meal i.e. cottage cheese or some casein based product on non-lifting day? Thanks…

Yes, you are still fasting for the duration of your sleep otherwise…

Absolutely. Personally, the only thing I change in my eating habits from training to non training days is my direct pre and post workout nutrition. (shakes etc.). Other than than, I keep it the same. Your doing the most repair and growth on your off days, so why wouldn’t you feed your body the same?

Hey thanks Rotlex…very good points. Sometimes I just need some refresher posts like that to remind me of the importance of growth and repair.
