is there any benefits in mixing my nighttime casein with skimmilk before bed?
Milk makes my drink delicious but im afraid the carbs might effect gh secretion during sleep. has anyone ever heard of that?
Whats your guys thoughts?
2 scoops casein, 1 tbsp natty pb in water for me right before bed
Peanut Butter adds more calories if you need them and is delicious. It also provides essential fatty acids.
For me its 1 scoop casein with 1 cup warm skim milk.
frozen yoghurt, casein, natty pb, soya milk
I do the same but with 1 scoop and with skim milk.
OP, I didn't even think about your point about the carbs...I am going to try it with water tonight...let's see if I can stand the taste.
Edit: Actually, I did try it with 1/2 milk 1/2 water last time and it was pretty good, so you could try that to cut down on carbs without sacrificing to much taste.
Edit #2: Just tried it, it's pretty good! I'll be doing this from now on I think. YMMV though...I use ON 100% Casein from Nutraplanet.
I think the main point is control over insulin, don't go mad with the carbs at night and send it skyrocketing, but don't worry about a few grams from your milk.
Perhaps switch to a low carb milk, eat eggs, meat or some other protein source and some vegetables or have cottage cheese instead?
You're quite right, the presence of fat in the gut slows gastric emptying time. Soluble fibre also has this effect on the gut.Originally Posted by rah22491
