I heard that you shouldnt eat before bed. Why is this, and what time should i stop eating if i got to bed about 10:15 every night.

also im on a bulk and im lost on what to eat, so i was wondering if I could be pointed in a genral direction. I know lots of calories, but I cant seem to find anything that is high in calories and low in fat.

No reason why you should not eat before bedtime, although three big macs and large fries is probably not a good idea. A bowl of porridge or a couple of slices of wholemeal toast will add a few low fat calories to your diet.

People who are trying to lose weight would benefit by not eating before bedtime, purely because they are then consuming fewer calories.

Your metabolism does not know what time is bedtime

Eating before bed is fine on a cut or a bulk, as long as it fits into your caloric goal.

There's plenty of threads in this section discussing some good food choices you can make for bulking. Check the stickies. Like the other poster alluded to, there's no reason to avoid fats.

I eat atleast 50-70g of carbs 20g of fat and 35g of protein 1-2 hours before bed. And honestly I do not feel that I am dirty bulking or gaining noticeable fat

if you are very worried about gaining fat and want to bulk stick to a protein with caesin in it.. like cottage cheese mixed with almonds (healthy fat)

Wait what just happened? I never mentioned being worried about gaining fat. If anything I am worried about eating like a mad man and still not gaining the desired mass.

Quick question: how long should you wait between a decent meal and laying down on the bed? I've heard if you do it straight away it might lead to nasty acid reflux or something.

Is 30 mins ok ?

Your digestive processes do not function at full capacity when you eat and then sleep shortly after. The generally recommended amount of time to stop eating before sleep is 2-3 hours. It also can rev up acid reflux, or cause bloating the next morning. A large contributor to weight gain as well.

You can have a protein shake as your last meal if you are concerned.

If your bulking your gonna put on the chub either way, to some degree. Get over it. Eat your caloric goal, thats all there is to it.
