If I am cutting, should I still have a protein shake before bed? I know its good to get it for my muscles while Im sleeping, but would that be smart to do if Im trying to drop bf?

yes some type of protein before bed always. Protein Whey isn't the best choice but its better than nothing.

this is a perfect time for some egg/casein protein. whey is no good before bed. ITs digested rapidly and may cause and insulin surge (bad for cutting)

my favorite choice.
Speaking of which, can someone give me the nutritional value for a 1/2 cup of 4% cottage cheese? is it around 125cal,5g carbs,15g protein,5g fat? thats just a guess as I usually stick with 1% or 2%..

If you're cutting, you might want to add some glutamine to your evening diet. Although you want to take it separately from the protein shake.
