T Nation

Weightgainer at Bedtime?

Is a little while before bedtime on a lifting day a good time to utilize a low carb, high protein and fat high calorie shake? It may be painfully obvious, but I’d like to hear input if its a good idea. Or would it be better to just have my regular whey + natty PB shake?

My shake consists of:
2 cups Choc cal countdown milk (for taste mostly)
1 serving nat PB
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 scoop Grow! Whey
1/2-1 cup heavy whipping cream
Cal: 1000-1450 depending on how much cream
52g protein

Yes, many people do this.

Sounds good to me. A lot of calories at once, but if you need them to grow, go for it.
