    BCAAs at night instead of casein?

    okay, so as you all know. casein powder is extremely expensive, and i absolutely hate the taste of cottage cheese. it irks me that i can't get that final meal in that will stick with me throughout the night. and by meal, i mean snack because i sure as hell don't cook.

    BCAAs best thing i can think of right now...

    Casein would deffently be better, it also has roughly 10g BCAA's per scoop anyway.

    BCAA's arnt relly the best thing to take before bed, IMO they are not even needed as a supplement when bulking, the best time to use BCAA's IMO is when cutting and on a calorie deflict, as the BCAA's would help preserve muscle mass. People mainly use BCAA's as a supplement during weight training and/or cardio when cutting, bulking isnt relly needed to supplement with BCAA's you should be getting enough through your diet.

    If you cant afford your casein just use whey or another source of protein from whole foods, but take some peanut butter with it as it is a good source of healthy fat and will slow down the digeastion of the protein.

    If you can't afford casein supplementation, and can't stand the taste of casein, just down a large glass of milk before bed. The protein in milk is %80 casein.

    OP can also just eat a protein source pre-bed that has a slower digestion time. Nothing wrong with an animal flesh like chicken or steak. Do not believe the myth that if you don't have casein pre-bed that you will start to burn muscle while you sleep.

    bcaas before bed isnt the best idea because they are used relatively quickly and wont give you any sort of time released effect

    i don't have a planned meal plan. i just eat alot. i don't allow myself to be hungry, and i eat wholesome foods. 5-6 legit meals not including shakes and snakes. but if i have a chance to cram one more meal in before i go to bed, i want it to be worth while. and i used to drink 2 glasses of milk and eat some PB, but i piss too much during the night. kind of interferes with my sleep... :P

    i'll try the CC thing, but if i puke, it's going to be in a brown paper bag and it's going to end up on your front porch in the morning.

    You're an idiot.


    OP: BCAAs are like the protein's equivalent to sugar. They absorb rapidly. Just eat meat before bed. You could always just drink milk.

    I do this, normally 2-3 glasses of milk... but I wouldn't recommend it if cutting, to many carbs
