    I'll be doing cardio and lifting on the same days and was wondering, would it be stupid to take a post workout shake with high glycemic carbs? I know this is ideal for bulking, but should i be doing it when cutting as well to get proteins absorbed as fast as possible?

    Also, should i be taking a shake before going to bed? I currently take about a 450 calorie shake, (30 g of whey, 20 g of casein, then the rest is carbs and fats), before bed.

    you should definately take the carbs after you lift. it will just help protein absorb faster and muscles will grow/maintain even on a cut. Carbs postworkout are fine.

    i wouldnt take the carbs or fat before you go to bed. casein is fine.

    Chow on some cottage cheese before bed instead. Shakes should only be used for PWO and where it's inconvenient to have food i.e shake in the car/at your desk.
