Some people make great gains and eat their last meal hours before bed.
As a general principle, I'd say those who are thin and lower body fat can afford to eat an equal number of calories from casein protein and fat just before bed (remember, 4 cals per gram protein and 9 per gram fat).
On the other hand, those who want to stave off fat gain should probably just consume 25-100 grams of casein just before bed. Personally I am gaining just fine right now with one scoop milk protein isolate before bed and a teaspoon of cod liver oil taken alongside.
Just a matter of knowing how your body responds. Berardi works/has worked closely with Biotest in the past, and they produced some very alarming articles about "losing muscle while you sleep" in order to sell their overpriced casein blend that actually has a lot of whey added. Berardi is a great nutritionist, but I think he was also encouraged to play into the alarmist "Your body goes catabolic at night!" trend.

I take in 40g of a mixed whey/casien protien shake before I fall asleep, seems to be doing well. I wake up with a lot more energy now than when I didn't take it.

The ball is also starting to roll the other way; some people are now talking about the benefits of having a few carbs before bed. Better perceived sleep quality is one of the benefits.

I like some cottage cheese/ Ultra Peptide before bed + coconut oil. When trying to cut though, I prefer an omelet about 60-90 minutes pre-bed.

gotta get that casein + whey. You only need you amino levels about 25% above baseline to keep from going catabolic. 30g casein can do this.
add 30 g whey for one more anabolic boost before bed.
