New to the forum so a big hello.
Ive been reading about proteins recently and have just read a brief bit about catabolic states in the morning. From what I understand when you are sleeping your body is repairing itself. During your sleep your body may burn muscle instead of fat therefore drinking/eating protein when you wake up is a good idea. Is a catabolic state basically the opposite of anabolic?
Ive also read that eating protein in the morning is better than carbs as the energy from protein lasts for a longer drawn out period than carbs and it is good for wieght loss as it gives you a more full feeling...

A big hello right back.
You will not be catabolic first thing in the morning, unless you've neglected to eat for the previous 36 hours or so.

Note the above - Things go funny when you're body starts to go low on carbs. The body likes it for energy. So, it's a good idea to supply it for energy. Course, the other two are also important. Proteins are the building block. Fat helps with nutrient absorption, has some (limited to protein) building blocks and is the secondary choice for energy.
