I drink a protein shake before bed everynight and I wanted to know what wud be the best to drink...I either drink ON or a lean body but i was thinking about Dymatize ELite 12 hour....let me know what you guys think....thanks
I drink muscle milk!
You want a good casein protein. That way you get slow absorbtion while you sleep
try cottage cheese(low fat),and any good casein protein...
it's slow digesting...so obviously the best for night
casien + fiber
ON 100% casien + bulk psyllium husk is what I use some nights.
If I'm just looking to stay nitrogen positive I chose Xtend(bcaas) and fiber. Either way I feel full before bed.

I go for Ultra Peptide.

2 cups of non fat milk with a scoop of whey. I didn't like ON's casein.
I use the Ultra Peptide as well.
I'm glad Fiber was now put in muscle milk...less clogging me up!
is ultra peptide by xtreme formulations? I got dymatize elite 12 hour protein for now
I don't believe in drinking casein before bed anymore.
add a few slices of some sliced turkey/jerky/tuna or something with your casien shake.......and a lil olive oil or something it will slow absorption to a crawl
Well, basically I don't think you should be digesting your food all night long. There are other things the body needs to do while sleeping. Here is another thread in which I express my opinion,
Casein Pre bed no more!
I like Probolic-SR. It doesn't have the best taste but I stopped drinking protein for taste long ago. It has high amounts of casein in it. When I mix up my workouts or change/add exercises sometimes I'll get slightly sore the next morning but after I started using Probolic before bed (2 scoops) I'm never sore the next day after a change. I usually eat a small serving of cottage cheese with it too. But any of the 12 hour claims are plain BS. Casein digests in 5-7 hours but never takes longer than 7 so the 12 hour claims are crazy.
the only reason i dont like probolic is cuz its main protein source is from soy. I read that somehwere that soy lowers testosterone in men
They did an analysis on P-SR and the majority of protein in Probolic (65%) is Casein. It also has Whey & Soy in it to a lesser extent but I'm not sure exactly how much of each of those.
