I must admit I do like a snack Before turning in, And sometimes I do Go to bed late.
So I thought up some really good healthy snacks to have before you turn in..
Your metabolic process never takes a break, even whilst you sleep.
Give it the energy it craves with easy-to-make snacks that fire muscle development without flicking on the fat switch.
Naive dieters generally believe anything consumed in the hours just before bed goes direct to body fat stores. Sounds like a nightmare for your bod! The real nightmare is that they finish going to bed famished, wake up with borderline energy, and wonder why they are feeling like crap despite being conditioned.
Wake up! Your metabolism never fully closes down, even overnight. Eating several calories or bad foods prior to bed adds fat to your physique, but not all nocturnal snacking brings forth extra body fat.
The magic trick is to be smart before sleep time. Whenever you snack late, make room for the extra calories earlier in the daytime to obey your target calorie limit. Select foods which fuel muscles, keep hunger levels low, and promote stable blood sugar levels …
so your brain does not wake up your body.
These six snacks supply quality nutrition that supports fat loss and muscle building, helping you work on the body of your dreams:
1. Cottage Cheese With Peanut Butter.
Considered a classic night-time snack by many health enthusiasts, cottage cheese with natural peanut butter is a noshing no-brainer.
Cottage cheese is perfect before bed because it includes lots of casein protein, which releases slowly into the body.
This ensures a steady supply of amino acids through the night.
Adding peanut butter to this snack step-ups digestion time, raising the snack’s ability to control hunger.
Keep the peanut butter to a tablespoon or less to avoid heavy calories!
2. Low-Fat string Cheese With an apple
If you crave cheese, this is your pre-bed meal. Regular cheese is high in saturated fat, so choose a reduced-fat variety with a healthy dose of protein.
Cheese is carb-free, making the fat/protein combination just what you’re looking for!
Include an apple for some minimal calories.
2 sticks reduced-fat string cheese
1 medium apple

3. Canned Tuna With Olive Oil
Canned tuna packed in water is fat free, so it’s all important to add healthy fats to hike up the staying power overnight.
Drizzle one tablespoon of olive oil over the tuna and serve up with a bed of spinach for an iron-packed snack that readies you for the day to come.
4. Greek Yoghurt With Flaxseeds
Supercharge the healthy fat content of this low-fat snack with some flaxseeds.
Collectively, these deliver a steady dose of fiber, protein and omega fats!
5. A Casein Protein Shake With Coconut Oil
If solid food isn’t your forte before bed, consider a casein protein shake. We talked over the benefits casein provides in cottage cheese earlier. But you can also get it in protein powder!
Nearly all casein shakes are low in fat. To get the best of this, add fats by shaking in a tablespoon of coconut oil, which provides heart-healthy medium-chain triglycerides.
This snack contains about 200 calories and aids repair muscle overnight.
That’s all for now..
