    Late night workout meal


    Whats the best late night workout meal? If going the gym around 11 pm. I keep reading in different posts that cottage cheese is good for late night protein. Late night should I stay away from the carbs?

    You will need carbs to re-fuel right after your workout with some protein added usually a shake will be fine.
    Cottage cheese is usually suggested as a bedtime snack when you have worked out in the day and need something that is slow-release overnight.
    So, if you go to bed at 2am, have cottage cheese before bed.
    If you go to bed straight after your workout, have a carb/protein combination meal.
    Hope that helps.

    I agree, but make sure you keep the protein on the higher side and carbs somewhat lowered.
