    snack in the middle of the night

    i normally wake up around 3:30 at night and take a protein shake.... does anyone else wake up in the middle of the night and take some protein or am i just paranoid of becoming catabolic, i know whey protein doesn't last all that long in the stomach so i take it with approx 20 oz of milk

    am i weird or is this a normal thing for most you guys?

    You don't want to mix it with milk...use water. Unless you want that belly or you're an extreme hard gainer.

    you don't recommend milk? i was trying to get a homemade time release shake with the whey and casein

    im all for a better idea for a homemade timerelease protein if you have one

    this is what i was going on

    Taking in more than 30 grams at once is not advisable because of its short-lived half-life. The best way to counter this effect a bit is to mix it in milk and not water. As I explained in my last article the casein in milk protein slows down the digestion of the whey protein, which may give it more time to absorb. It's a bit of a time-release mechanism. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/catprot.htm

    Personally I make up 3 shakes before I go to bed.... I drink one at bedtime and usually will wake up twice at night with a little bit of hunger pains goin on....

    Only started once I was on cycle - not sure if I'll continue waking up like this off cycle...I sure as hell hope not! Makes it tough to get a good night sleep.

    Well milk has all those carbs and sugar....I recommend using flax...the fat will help slow the digestion, plus the omega's in it is good for ya.

    Some people have a really hard time losing that little gut (i.e. ME) So I prefer not to even put it on. But it is all a personal preference.
