Eating before bed: What’s the deal

The key is Protein! In many studies it shows that women who consume protein before bed had zero negative metabolic consequences. In active women the benefits included increased muscle building. Where can you find this protein? The best form of protein before bed comes from casein. Casein can be found in in dairy products like cottage cheese or yogurt. Be sure to focus on the sugar free, low fat versions of these products. Casein is a slow digesting protein that won’t spike your blood sugar and is slowly digested. If you’re vegan try plant protein with low sugar.

What to avoid: Fat and sugar. Both can cause an insulin spike and affect your sleep pattern. Some people feel stimulated after eating sugary products and it keeps them up.
