A rich EFA fish fillet and broccoli is one of the best pre bed meals you could take in. Most people that take in casein shakes before bed for ease/taste (I personally don't like fish too much so I just throw down some cc flax and broccoli but same principle.) Also when you say make a difference do you mean in gaining muscle or loosing fat? both?
Whole foods are preferential 99% of the time, and this subject falls into that category.

Cool sounds good. I was gonna get Dymatize elite protein because it was time released...
Ya forgot to add I also take down a tablespoon of flax oil with my last meal and to answer OCC I guess it's for both. Obviously to gain muscle with little fat as possible.

Just make a fish shake....
On a serious note I doubt your meal vs a shake is going to make a huge difference, the only thing I ever notice is that I usually get some energy after eating a meal, but with a shake i really don't.

When you guys eat at night, as opposed to drinking a shake, do you notice you have a hard time getting to sleep.

^ I prepared my last round of ground beef patties with a few eggs mixed in before throwing them on the grill. Good stuff.
I don't have any trouble sleeping after eating, but it's not like I'm gorging either.

I always go whole foods, they keep the metabolism stoked for longer, and for me it keeps me a little thinner, even on a bulk. I usually go Fish/Cottage cheese/Broccoli, if I am just not hungy that night I will pound out a few glasses of milk.

I personally take about 30 grms of cottage cheese mixed with a spoon of almond/macademia butter. Works quite decent plus gives me ease to use. By the by too much of broccoli also gives you gas so beware of it.

But more recently, I've become a little more lenient with my last "snack" of the day. Sometimes I only have a whey shake if I'm not that hungry. Other times my last meal is a whole meal if I have time. Or simply just a couple scoops of peanut butter.
Regardless, I consider it more important to get a good night's rest. As you sleep your body releases very important hormones that are essential to your growth. Eating something, especially something very fatty before bed, could theoretically delay the release of these hormones.
I've even noticed that if I don't eat anything before bed I tend to wake up feeling a lot more refreshed (not to mention I don't have to piss overnight). It's something interesting to think about.

I never really incorporated beef in my diet because it has 27g of fat per serving and that's a lot don't you guys think? Curious what you have to say about that. I love beef but 27g of fat is a lot, especially if it's not EFA.

you can take the 80% ground beef, brown it in a pan, rinse it thru with boiling water with it in a seive, and end up with less fat than if you bought the 96% beef.

Good tip but so much work. I learned through my experience all these years of training that if I had to work hard to make my food it becomes de-motivating and a pain. Quick and simple. I'd love to have the beef to eat between meals but again such a pain and nothing tastes better than when it's made of the spot. I tried making oatmeal for a week... holy sh!t that was terrible, that's the only thing I will take time to make.

whenever I find something thats a pain in the ass to do I try to do that with. even chicken breasts, i'll often buy 3-4 lbs and just boil the whole load of em at once, then fridge em.

^ Any cooking is a pain in the ass for me to do, so I generally put aside a few hours Sunday/Thursday evening to do all my cooking at once, then bag up all my meals so I can grab 'em and go. Seriously, I do that with everything except for sandwiches.
