    I was wondering, what would you guys recommend eating later on at night? Sometimes I don't have time or don't feel like working out earlier in the day so I go before the gym closes and come home around this time (11:00-ish) and needless to say I'm hungry. I usually just drink a glass of skim milk and have a pbj (natural PB after reading the thread here). I don't go to sleep directly afterwards but is that too fattening still? I'm trying to put on a few more pounds of muscle since I stopped working out for about 4 months and lost a bit but at the same time I'm not looking to put on any BF. Suggestions?

    Nothing in your body changes at night. Cals are cals. Your body doesn't know that it's past 7 or whatever wives tale time it is that you aren't supossed to eat past.

    Current schedule that has worked:
    PWO meal always within an hour of working out!
    then full sized meal 2 hours later
    then asleep within 2 more hours
    It's uncomfortable to be stuffed when going to sleep but I never go to bed hungry. I've got to build me some muscle; only my mind takes a break at night.

    oh, ok, I was under the impression that your metabolism slowed down at night. I hate going to sleep hungry too.
