Calcium free pre-bed protein?
Any ideas for a good calcium free prebed protein? You shouldn't take calcium with ZMA (ZMK for me ) and i want to find something that is slow digestion/absorption like casein, but calcium free.

I buy gallon jugs of egg whites, and have the equivalent of 10 egg whites before bed. I think thats calcium free.

I take my zmk an hour before bed and then put the shake on might night stand and chug it right before I fall asleep.

Just take the Zinc product an hour before bed and consume the shake before your head hits the pillow.

I don't eat closer than 3 hours before bed, insulin blocks night time gh release, I just make sure my last meal is fatty. A few BCAA before bed if I have been training. Since doing this I sleep much better and I am more motivated at breakfast. Not for every type of body though I guess.

I eat tuna right out of the can, with either pepper or mustard. I also take my Zinc 30 minutes to an hour before I eat it. Tuna is not the slowest, but I have it with some flax and fish oil to slow it down.

Interesting. I though egg whites were one of the slower digesting proteins. I'll have to do some reading.

I'm pretty sure I'm right about that, but I will conceed I could be wrong.

Soy?!?!?! Ewwww! Why would you want soy?! Soy sucks in comparison to whey protein. Of course that still leaves you with the whole calcium problem.........
Like mentioned above, take the ZMK on an empty stomach an hour or so before your normal pre bed shake and you should be fine.

I would think that ZMK, since it's not coated would digest within the hour. It shouldn't be an issue.

Good advice arjun4! I think most of us could stand to use some more fiber in our diets. It helps slow down the digestion process and allows our bodies to get more protein out of the food (due to sitting in the digestive system longer) than if it were taken without the fiber.
