Depends what time you go to bed.

I'd say drink your protein shake during your workout in between sets and have a little something before bed, like cottage cheese for example.

It also depends if you're cutting or bulking.

tuna is ideal. i have also found a 6 oz can of bumble bee carb meat, which is only 80 cals. great light snack anytime.

I also think cottage cheese is about ideal.

I think a 6oz can of tuna should have about 175 kcal (2.5 servings per can)

I usually drink a couple glasses of milk about a half hour before I go to sleep because milk has a slow digesting protein (casein) which is good while your sleeping 7+ hours or so without getting any nutrients and it is also beneficial to your sleeping pattern.

i think you should definatly have a goodsized meal if you just worked out, post workout is when calories will be best partitioned. cut calories at otherh times of the day, not after workout
