• It is best not to eat things like that before bed. If you want to lose weight or maintain your current weight, you shouldn't eat within three hours of going to bed. But if you're hungry it would be best to eat fruit, cottage cheese, or something else that is light and healthy.
  • I have heard - don't know if this is factual - that eating a lot of protein before bed will make you feel hungrier in the morning when you wake.
  • I really don't think that is the best idea. I'm assuming that the bar has a good amount of sugar in it. If so, then you will definitely increase your weight quickly, but not much more muscle will be gained. Protein is taken for muscular stability and repair. If I consume a protein bar, it would be sometime near (before or after) a workout.
  • If you workout regularly and strenuously it's alright, because the protein will help heal and recover sore muscles. If you're not into working out, it may not hurt you, but there's no need for the 20 grams.
  • If you work out everyday for 3 hours like me it's a good thing.
  • 3-27-2017 You need to read some books about nutrition and learn how to eat right. Protein shakes are made of powdered milk, soy flour, sugar, and flavor. They cost about $1.25 for the amount of protein you get in a quarter's worth of milk. Your body needs 4/10 gram of complete protein per pound of weight, about 65 grams for a female and 90 grams for a male. You do not need more because you exercise or less because you loaf. For convenience you only count 6 grams per egg, 12 grams per glass of milk, and 24 grams per quarter pound of meat. If you eat more than the body needs, the excess is burned as ordinary but expensive calories. If you really think you need more protein, get powdered milk and mix it into your food.
