    Last year, one of my football coaches made a diet plan for some of the players and he told us to eat pretty clean, and one thing that stood out is that we were not to eat after 6 or 7 o clock. He said the fasting period until the next morning would shrink our stomachs and cause fatloss and weightloss. I have heard before that eating before bed is good for metabolism and things, what do you guys think of the fasting period vs. eating before bed

    terrible idea. if you are looking to lean down, eat but restrict carbs at night.

    What about drinking a protein shake right after the gym and going to sleep like 30 minutes later--like 1130 sleep and wake up at 5-6? srsly

    sleep = slows down heart rate, slowing down heart rate will affect how you digest and store the food you just ate...if you eat before bed, give it some time to digest and make sure its light...

    frls. good idea to eat slow digesting proteins like a casein shake or some cottage cheese before bed so your body has a source as you sleep. Helps curb the catabolic state your body goes into while your zonked out.

    Intermittent fasting is all the rage among some small 160lb-ish dudes on other forums. Personally, depriving yourself of protein for ANY extended period of time seems stupid.

    I have to do this because I usually wake up around 5-6am every night no matter what time I go to bed starving and have to pound a shake or I wont be able to go back to sleep.

    I do a casein shake roughly an hour before bed almost every night consisting of water and a 1.5 scoops (roughly 40g). I also sleep 8 hours almost every night. I've leaned out without losing any muscle that I can tell the last 6 weeks (along with other dieting of course).

    you can always put 3-4 heaping tablespoons of BCAA's in a water bottle and sip on it into the night, thats better than nothing.
