View Full Version : Need a replacement meal for late at night

02-15-2007, 08:32 PM
I am really trying to cut some fat and cards out of my diet and since my choices for eating are limited I'm thinking maybe I should try taking some meal shakes or something as a replacement for my last meal of the day. I usually go to the gym late and by the time I'm done I need to eat and I always end up eating a frozen pizza or a bowl of pasta or something.

Any ideas? I am poor and can't cook so my options are limited.

Cottage cheese. Casein protein is a good before bedtime snack.

I need a full meal though, something that will fill me up so I won't be tempted to eat a whole frozen pizza.

Cottage cheese with nuts. Piece of chicken, steak, eggs, whatever. Adjust the size to "fill you up". Almost all of these will be cheaper then a frozen pizza.

Cottage Cheese FTW. Just mix it up with some chicken/tuna and perhaps some green vegetables and it shouldn't break the bank too much.

I used to eat tuna, a PBJ, and a glass of milk before I went to sleep, was getting pretty big.

Cottage Cheese/Pineapple with a couple tablespoons of natty pb is a winner.

I opt for 2 Slim Fast Low Carb Diet Shake occasionally. 190 Cals, 7.5 g of poly and mono fats, 6g carbs (4g fiber) 20 g protein each. Main ingredients are water and calcium caseinate.

Well since you eat too many cards, I suggest seeing a special kind of doctor. ;)

I know you said you're trying to cut back, but I just eat 4 hardboiled eggs.

Cottage cheese is good, but the lactose in it makes a lot of people bloat, although it does digest slowly.

It can be, that's why it has been suggested.

Anything with fat and protein is ideal for a bedtime snack/meal/shake.

I always get a craving for some junk food late at night also. Try out those lean pockets ultra w/ the whole grains. Not exactly the best because i'm sure its all processed but as far as macro's go, they got a decent amount of protein and are low in calories.

Fat-free cottage cheese + 1/4 cup peanuts + one packet of Splenda
