What kind of night time protein do you use? What different kinds of powders or formulas or even real food?
Casien,and egg albumin for nightime..plus a 3:00am whey shake if your a freak like alot of us..
Just what madman stated, personally I like fat free cottage cheese and maybe a glass of skim milk.

I have been using the micellar casien, supposed to be VERY slow release, but its a bit pricey. I was thinking of sometype of blend of Aussie casien (calcium casienate - i think) and micellar to cut down on the cost a bit.Originally Posted by MaDmaN
As for the freak thing...ABSOLUTELY
I tried the middle of the night whey thing for awhile, it got really old...really quick!
That is a good change up.Originally Posted by jminis
I use about 3-4 scoops of ON 100% whey in low carb milk, if I can afford it, then I add a half scoop of psillium husks and a tablespoon of ground flax seeds to slow the absorption rate a tad. Seems to work for me but there is likely a catabolic window during the night. I use this mix for bulking and after really heavy leg days.
Otherwise I use cottage cheese.
What kind of protein do I use at night? Tuna. Other times of the day? Tuna. 4AM meal? You guessed it.
I've always wondered whether it really makes a difference eating a "slow protein" right before bed. I mean your body stores aminos anyways..... I'm not bashing or anything, just musing.
Yeah it definately does. Your body can only use so many aminos at one time, and the rest are converted to glucose, which can then be stored as fat. This is why whey is normally only used for postworkout b/c your body is in a different state pwo in which it can utilize more aminos. But still i would never go over 20-30 grams of whey protein at one time. Whey is passed through the stomach and into the intestines so quickly that it can't all be utilized.Originally Posted by Dan
As for night time protein can't beat a mpi/whey/egg mix.
protein shake w/ udo's oil or tbsp natty PB
i usually use whey, eggs, and a spoonfull of peanutt butter mixed in skim milk.
I like MET-Rx's Protein Plus powder. It's 45 grams of protein from a combination of fast and slow acting proteins (whey, egg, milk, and casein) with only 3 carbs and no fat. It's perfect for bedtime to keep that steady release of aminos in your system while you're crashed out. I usually ad some flax powder for the added fat and fiber.
Every night? or just workout nights?
probably not recommended but i usually cook up a frozen pizza before bedtime...great for bulking...lol
although when i am trying to eat clean, id say tuna, i tried casein, but it just doesnt mix well.Originally Posted by weeenisss
I make a blend of 60% caseinate, 20%whey, 20% egg protein. I take around 40g right before bed.
3 chicken breasts and if I wake up later whey protein in low carb milk. Started this recently and I have to watch calorie intake (fat boy genetics). I have made nice gains and I am still losing bodyfat.
Definitely every night. You have to remember that your body eats whether or not you feed it. So, if there's no extra aminos floating around, it breaks down muscle tissue to get the aminos it needs....think about that the next time you think about skipping a meal....Originally Posted by Neuromancer

Where do yall get your casien from? I'm guessing from an online custom protein shop like allthewhey, but they don't sell any.
