Sorry if this seems like a stupid question but I'm bored at work If we sleep for say a third of the day and accept that night time is an important time for muscle recovery when protein is likely to be used pretty much solely for muscle repair then.... are we eating enough before going to bed/at night? I'm thinking we guzzle protein frequently throughout the day to ensure we don't lose muscle and we have adequate amounts to build muscle but then we have a meal before bed consisting (I'm guessing) of a similar amount of protein to other meals and then sleep for 8 hours or so. Sure people look for a slow acting protein like casein but in that case should we not be looking to consume about a third of our daily protein before bed? (I'm not one for shakes in the middle of the night but thats another option). Just seems weird to me that 30g of slow digesting protein is enough for 8 hours of critical recovery time? Thoughts from equally bored people? At the moment I'm mixing a can of tuna with half a tin of baked beans (weird, moi?) cos I odn't want to have a shake and its an easy way of getting 45g of protein with few carbs but I'm thinking of increasing this to 60-80g, would just have a whole can of beans but trying to cut! If anyone has any advice re:carbs/fat before bed to go with protein that would be appreciated too!
