    Would depend on the rest of your diet and the timing, stats, etc...

    Drop the banana and eat the tub just before bed. Perfect!

    I wouldnt have it for cutting because of the lactose in it. Depends how strict you want to be though. Essentially theres nothing wrong with it though. Have some veg instead of the bannana though mate ie some brocolli.

    It could be perfectly fine to have. Is this meal before bed? What time is the meal? When do you train?
    etc.

    BritBB what other options is there to have before bed other than cottage cheese if you wanted to be more strict on a cutting diet?
    With doing cardio in the am and sometimes a hour walk before bed.

    Ive only been eating 125g cc before bed and im 220 lbs.

    Tuna mate. But when dieting i have my last meal 30-40 mins prior to bed and have a portion of glutamine just before bed.

    I dont know why everyone speaks so highly of cottage cheese on this site, every other post on here from people in the diet forum say that they have cottage cheese before bedtime??? I dont understand why though?

    Could anyone explain why they use cottage cheese and why everyone except for me seems to use it, im guessing because its casein and casein is slower digesting so its timed throughout the night. But is there anything else about cottage cheese that ive missed or dont know about?

    I just eat either some lean chicken breast, some lean fish or can of tuna, seems to work well on me so i'll continue.

    On top of that, i rate meat proteins higher than dairy protein, i grow v well eating meat proteins and so thats why i have lean meat/fish prior to bedtime as opposed to dairy.

    i think its just as its fairly cheap and doesnt require cooking, bud.
    i dont like the taste myself so i dont eat it.

    Pretty much just the casein but agree, any meat is great.
    I suppose most people end up not wanting to eat meat just before bed and as JKJ says it's cheap and convient.


    But looking at your piccy, BritBB I'm keeping quite and just saying Yes, Sir. Impressive!

    Cottage cheese with casein before bed so its slower release.

    Any other lean solid protein is fine though, i just tend to use cottage cheese as a good example of pre bed meal.

    Quark is also decent. Calcium Caseinate if you wanna be strict on a cut.

    Calcium Caseinate is great (hard to swig down and gets quite pricy)
