The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Bedtime Meal

    Just wondering what everyone eats before they call it a night. Also how soon before you go to bed do you eat your last meal of the day?

    I have dinner 2-3 hours before bed. Right before bed I'll have a glass of milk, fish-oil caps and a multi-vitamin.

    Dinner ideally 2 hours before bed.

    I'll have a bowl of cottage cheese right before turning in (+ 2 T. olive oil particularly if calories have been low for that day.)

    my last full meal is at 8pm , i will have 2 scoops of Nitrean and maybe some peanut butter and a multi at 10pm and usually to bed after. The Nitrean has a great mix of proteins for time release while you sleep!! Seens how we usually sleep from 6 to 9 hours, that is a HUGE "fasting" time and having some slower digesting proteins in your system helps to keep nitrogen flowing in the blood! Good stuff, i would incorporate Nitrean in your nutritional intake prior to bed!

    Milk plus some cheese and maybe a handful of nuts or some peanut butter.

    When I was bulking I'd have a whole pizza about an hour before bed. Embrace the fourth meal.

    I make a bed time protein shake. I have a little yogurt maker and I use about 10oz of homemade yogurt, couple of strawberries/blackberries, some flax seed oil and mix it all with Casein protein. I have been taking this everyday for over 10 years. My body is so used to it by now that if I skip it before bed, my stomach starts growling.

    I know you should not eat carbohydrates before bed. Not caount carbohydrates from vegetables as well? the reason is, I had a lot of sleep problems. I usually do not eat chicken or fish about 9:30 or 22:00. then end up staying in bed for hours and hours? This could be the carbs from vegetables? I just do not eat green vegetables before going to bed ... broccoli, spinach, green beans.

    Tom and The Spartan, I am curious about the multi before bed... I never really thought of doing this, but it peaks my interest. Could you explain your reasons and possible benefits?

    I have no reason for taking it before bed as opposed to any other time of day. That's just my schedule.

    I cook up 6 whole eggs, throw some salt and pepper on them and have at it. I usually eat that meal within 1 hour of going to bed. Some nights if I'm trying to get in extra calories (which seems to be every night) I eat a few spoons of peanut butter and a glass of milk.

    I've been doing this for about 1 week. I like the idea of getting the higher protein and fats right before bed.
