Help me make a shake for bedtime
I bought enough whey protein but I read that it's fast digesting. What can i use to slow the absorption of the whey? Will PB be enough?? What about fruits e.g. bananas will aid?
BTW, Am i the only one who hates Cottage cheese? it's the most aweful taste. Is cottage cheese w/ strawberries,pineapples,etc any better?

Just mix the fiber in a small glass of water and take it right after your shake.

My ultimate shake/MR is:
16oz skim milk
1 whole banana
1 tbsp flax oil
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 scoops ON whey (can use only 1)
1 cup Total cereal
4 ice cubes
BLEND and ENJOY!!!!
I dont like cottage cheese either. For some reason rye bread makes it easier to eat for me. Sounds weird, but I read it on another thread, and it worked well for me.
What can you use?Originally Posted by pyro
- Nuts (PB, walnuts)
- oils (olive, linseed, walnut)
- high fibre fruits (things like banana, grapes, pineapple etc are not your best 'slow fruit' choices - strawberries and raspberries are better)
- brans (wheat bran)
- xanthum gum or gar gum
- Other high fibre things (wheat germ, high fibre vegetables etc)
- casein protein (eg: cottage cheese) or powders
- eggs (cooked)
So what about something like:
+/- flavourings of choice (SF maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon)
+/- fruits such as raspberries
+/- added fibre (psyllium or xanthum-gum)
In terms of what is better: Personally, I would go for the real food such as casein + fruit + nuts every time.
That sounds like an awesome shake, and I will definitely be trying it as my morning shake... but doesnt it seem like a lot of sugar for someone to drink right before going to bed? I would be wide awake from the banana alone.Originally Posted by TrojanMan60563
Put that steel on your back and give it a motherfucking ride, son.
My bedtime meal is usually cottage cheese (blended), 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter, and 3 fish oil caps. Sometimes I will add milk and frozen strawberries to the cottage cheese mix.
I have a similar shake every nite just before bed.Originally Posted by KentDog
1 cup non-fat low carb milk
1 cup non-fat cottage cheese
1 scoop whey protine
1 TBL spoon Nat PB
splash of SF syrup (vanilla, chocolate, rasberry, carmel, etc).
I do not take any fish caps since I have PB in the shake. I also refrain from any additional carbs in my last meal. I forgot why no carbs, but it seems I recall that without the carbs the digestion was slower.

could you do this for a cut diet, pre bed shake?
"fuck it all, and fucking no regrets"
Yes, I do. The only thing I change up is the amount (less on cuts), and typically no milk.
My magical uber happy pre-bed shake
1 cup milk or water, depending on bulk/cut
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 scoop ON whey
1 scoop ON casein
2 tablespoons natty PB
Then have fiber. Smile again.
Guys, what other fruits can i use besides strawberries or raspeberries? they are little expensive for my budget....
Either take this man advice or have some tpye of lean meat along with fish or some other good type of efa's

Oh it is very awesome! Its great in the morning, and sugar does nothing to keep me awake. It does have a fair amount of sugar and calories so its probably not the best thing before bed...might want to do something simple like milk/whey/flax oil before bed.Originally Posted by Pizzer
