Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that one has met one's daily caloric needs. If one is trying to add lean mass, albeit slowly, then which pre-bed meal, of the following two, should one eat?
A) carbs and protein; pro: carbs and protein, when consumed in excess of total caloric needs, are less likely than fat to be stored as body fat. con: insulin is somewhat anagonistic to hgh.
B) fats and protein; pro: fat retards digestion of protein; fat is necessary for hormonal regulation; and fat consumed in the absence of insulin is relatively difficult to store; con: fat is generally the most easily stored of all macronutrients.
If I am incorrect on any of these facts, I apologize.
