whats your favorite last meal of the day? I usually have my last big meal around 4-5PM but when i get home I get hungry and like to eat something around 7-8PM but have nothing planed for it.
I'd like to hear your suggestions!
Last meal of the day for the majority of the year is fat free cottage cheese, natty pb (or flax seed oil,) and broccoli. Eat this 1.5 hours prior to bed. Tasty and great for gains.
~ 2 - 2.5 cups of 2% cottage cheese or a 75/25 casein blend with 2% milk! ~450 calories of delicious.

My evening ritual at about 8:30 is an omelette. I know most people have them in the morning, but I never have time with class, so it's a nice treat in the evening. To save time I cut up mushrooms, onions, veggies and whatever else I throw in and put it in a tupperware, so I can make an omelette in about 15 minutes. Load up the lowfat cheddar, and you got a nice last meal of the day to keep you going thru the night.
My last meal is usually 40 g whey with 16 oz of milk, 2 tbs peanut butter, and some pineapple.
Protein powder with heavy cream, mmmmmm!
I also mix it with plain yogurt, cottage cheese, or another type of fat such as olive, coconut, or flax oil but a couple tbsp of cream along with some water is almost as good as ice cream.
when bulking my last meal is almonds and 3 glasses of milk with 1 cup of cottage cheese. The carbs in milk digest slower than oatmeal so no one say "but milk has sugar in it"
before bed, if i wanna gain weight:
it's either 2 servings full fat cott cheese and 2 servings almonds or
6 oz steak, 2 eggs, 1 slice cheese in the eggs, chased with milled flax drink
if i cut weight, it's just a serving of cottage cheese and maybe some kind of nut (almonds or walnuts or peanuts)
1 cup oats, 1 chicken breast, 1 cup broccoli.
Props to you man. I've wanted to try the carb prior to bed strategy for a while but I know my body and it will seriously f me up as far as fat gain goes though. I find it funny when people with super efficient metabolisms (either straight up ectos or ecto-mesos) are petrified of carbs before bed.
I'm in the same boat man. My body would just pile on the fat if I tried to do a carb meal prior to bed.
Yeah, I can develop a little bit of a belly, but I have to try - hard. For example, I ate a Little Caesar's Hot N' Ready pizza everyday for a week straight, and two weeks later, without cutting cals, I'm back to 9%.
It's a ***** for me to put on mass though.
