    Grapes / Fruits Before Bed?

    I usually eat some grapes or strawberrys before bed just to kill the hunger. I'm clean bulking. I hate cottage cheese so can't eat that. Fruits before bed okay? Should I eat alot of carbs before bed, like a peanut butter/jelly sandwich or pasta, because I just can't seem to be gaining any weight. For the past 2 weeks i've been at a constant 162-163.

    I don't agree with swallowing sugars of any significant value before bed especially fructose

    oats , yams and green veggies are a good replacement for fruits. The oats (whole grain) will be filling due to the fiber.

    Yes that whole grain oats , not instant oatmeal

    id perfer if u got a caesin protein at least before u hit the sack.. a glass of milk wont hurt.. and have a little bit of fat along with ur oatmeal if u dont mind to slow down the digestion so it sticks in ur stomach longer over night

    how about some oatmeal
    a cup of milk
    and some almonds on the side?

    thats a great meal to have before going to bed

    I was wondering is it better to eat grapes an hour before bed, or if its better to eat egg whites and turkey bacon an hour before bed? Im trying to lose weight and am watching my calorie intake.

    It's better not to bump 6 year old threads.

    Anyway, are you asking the Internet to tell you which foods you prefer?
