Pro/Fat vs. Pro/Carb before bed?
I was just curious as to what is better for you; pro/fat or pro/carb before bed... and, does it matter if you are bulking or cutting?

pro fat always either way

Theoretically you could end your night on a pro/carb if it is your ppwo meal. I still try to get a pro/fat in before and not workout so late so that doesn't happen.

honestly if your bulking, and you feel you need the carbs, go for for a shake with all three.
when I do get all in one.. I wake up and feel full. but thats just me
w/e works for you

your body's ability to properly digest carbs gets worse as the night goes on is what i have read.

Not true at all. Your body can digest anything at anytime.

Personally for me off season bulking i have carbs with every meal including before bed, plus its not uncommon for me to wake in the middle of the night for a meal replacement shake that contains carbs.
However i have a very fast metabolism and if i didnt do this i would be ripped all year. So to answer your question there is no right or wrong answer, everyones different, do what works for you.

Giantz11 so your saying that someone should not worry about pro/fat pro/carb during evening hours or before bed?

if you workout late at night then takeing down some carbs is fine but if you eat RIGHT before bed make it pro/fat meal..
