    I have been eating high protein/ low fat-low carb meals now before bed for awile now.

    Eg, protein shake, salmon

    This is good right as the body really needs the food overnight to help recover?

    The word according to what we've learned and written into the Anafit Diet is no carbs. Protein and fat but no carbs. That with SesaPure/Glucorell is the centerpiece of the diet.

    I have never tried the anafit diet.

    When my current diet stops working, I'll give a shot.

    I generally only eat carbs with breakfast/dinner anyway though. :o

    cottage cheese is an excellent pre sleep meal, high in casine protien, low in fat and carbs.

    So wouldn't fat + protein + some sort of acidic (cider) vinegar be the best?

    Maybe it would slow gastric emptying but I wouldn't think about it that much unless you're contest dieting. That's pretty much what I eat right now though (salmon + side salad with balsamic vinegar).

    If it fits into my daily macro, I could care less what time I eat it.

    Yeah, but it's nice to get some casein protiens in before bed so your body has something to feed off for a few extra hours... especially if you're coming off a good workout that day/day before.
