I seem to sleep better with a satisfied stomach.

What are the best foods to eat before bed?

Some obvious ones are milk, cottage cheese, peanut butter, oats, eggs, and turkey

What else is good before sleppy time?

My vote is with cottage cheese and a chunk of apple smothered in natural peanut butter.

I've been eating CC every night for 12 weeks, it's getting old to say the least, anything else I could eat in it's place?

Casein protein wouldn't be a bad choice. Slower digesting than Whey.

That's what the cottage cheese is for ...

Basically any slow protein with fat will do the job.

i guess you could either use a protein blend (Nitrean) or buy some straight casein powder and mix up a shake before bed...but i don't know if that would really be worth it..

milk is almost all casien right? how come everyone says cottage cheese, but I have never heard someone say just drink 2 glasses of milk.

Something I'm missing?

Is that bad built? I mean 8 grams of protein per glass. 80 percent is casien right?

I just am...well I'm being too nice. i don't like cottage cheese. mixin it with fruit is the only way to stand it

Booyah.

Just eat a bunch of **** that has loads of protein mixed in and you'll solve the problem. If your watching cals then you have to eat to your advantage but if your overeating on purpose (bulking) then just eat whatever your cals allow. It's not going to make a huge difference.

I have a shake with milk, oatmeal, whey and olive oil, just like my other 7-9 meals.

my god, i sliced up a mango and throw it in. pretty good.

I guess I'll just do fruits in it and what not, I had misread the label in thinking it was 15 grams for 1 cup. but its 1/2 for 15 grams of protien. So that's like an easy 30 grams in one sitting. Not to shaby.

Sorry for the doubts

I love my MPI shakes everynight... half a cup of yogurt, 2 tbsp pb, 2 scoops MPI = heaven.
