    I have been eating high protein/ low fat-low carb meals now before bed for awile now.

    Eg, protein shake, salmon

    This is good right as the body really needs the food overnight to help recover?

    Only reason I don't eat before bed is I don;t sleep well and I get crazy ass dreams

    The word according to what we've learned and written into the Anafit Diet is no carbs. Protein and fat but no carbs. That with SesaPure/Glucorell is the centerpiece of the diet.

    I have never tried the anafit diet.

    When my current diet stops working, I'll give a shot.

    I generally only eat carbs with breakfast/dinner anyway though. :o

    cottage cheese is an excellent pre sleep meal, high in casine protien, low in fat and carbs.

    So wouldn't fat + protein + some sort of acidic (cider) vinegar be the best?

    Maybe it would slow gastric emptying but I wouldn't think about it that much unless you're contest dieting. That's pretty much what I eat right now though (salmon + side salad with balsamic vinegar).

    If it fits into my daily macro, I could care less what time I eat it.

    Yeah, but it's nice to get some casein protiens in before bed so your body has something to feed off for a few extra hours... especially if you're coming off a good workout that day/day before.
