    I know that eating slow digesting protein before bed helps keep the body in anabolic state so fat burns as you sleep. The only thing that I know of that has slow digesting protein is cottage cheese. Or I some times have a casein protein shake which is also slow digesting. Since casein protein is really just a supplement, I wanted to find out what other foods options there are that considered slow digesting protein. Thanks for any feedback!

    I would eat the big meal..cottage cheese whatever at noon. Do a ab workout before bed to keep the fat burn going on thru the night.

    Eggs are a very fast digesting protein. Meat is slow digesting as your digestive system is challenged to breakdown animal flesh for nutrition. There are protein supplements that combine fast to slow acting proteins in the same mix-you may want to consider that as an option.

    Eat chicken and egg? Which to eat first?

    I'd have a problem eating a mom and her baby in one sitting.

    So are you suggesting not eating anything before bed? That's an awfully long time to go without eating, ~8 hours of sleep with nothing in your stomach beforehand is quite catabolic.

    Why are the abortion lobby arguing that life now begins before conception?

    Because they knew us before we were formed in the womb. icon_biggrin.gif

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidMost meat sources are considered slow digesting. I don't recommend mixing protein sources but what I've found to be a great protein combination is chicken with some eggs. I respond very well to this combo and it's a slow releasing.


    Since eggs come from chickens the combination isn't all that taxing on the body. Or at least that's my theory. I could be wrong. But I don't think so. icon_smile.gif


    What do you guys suggest as a good snack before dinner then? I have dinner about 7pm and sleep around 11pm. Would a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, beef jerky, or cottage cheese be a good choice? I was hoping for more suggestions on variety since I already eat those but if there are no other real good options, that's fine then. Thanks for the responses!

    I have the same question, I'm in bed by 9:30, eat dinner around 6 or 7 or so, and am usually hungry at bed time. Usually do celery, or sometimes some peanut butter and celery, but looking for other ideas.

    Thinking of trying a protein shake with some Beneful fiber in it...

    go with what's in my profile... cottage chees (a casein protein= slow digesting, and then to make it even slower, mix with peanut butter, which is a healthy fat)

    That actually doesn't sound too bad!

    How do you know what digests fast or slow? Rather than giving a list is there a hard and fast rule?

    I'd like to know for carbs too.

    Complex carbohydrates digest slowly in your system. Brown rice, whole grain breads, anything whole grain that feels like a brick. I like to compare it to using wood in a fire; if you use pine wood it burns up real strong and fast. Oak burns for a long time giving your body a steady stream of fuel. Complex carbs are like oak for your body

    Here is the hard and fast rule.: White and fluffy fake bread and shit didn't exist until man made it in a lab.

    If it didn't exist 10,000 years ago, don't eat it. .


    Avoid white bread/anything processed. Oatmeal is excellent for breakfast!
