    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.

    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

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

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