What’s the best night time meal for a fat to muscle transformation?

Ever since I lost over thirty pounds of fat by following the Anaerobixx program, people have been asking about what nutrition and training plans I followed to get so ripped in such a short period of time.

Well, first of all, I am a big fan of meal-timing, although it has been criticized by many so-called “experts” looking to make a name for themselves by discounting a nurtitional principle that has been proven effective by many generations of athletes.

One of the basic principles of meal-timing (at least as I employ it) is to eat almost pure protein (as little fat and carbs as possible) after six in the evening.  That’s because, unless you work out in the evening, your body tends to start slowing down, metabolically speaking and, since you don’t expend much energy that late in the evening, your body has no need for carbohydrates.

Another principle that I think was important to me making such an amazing fat to muscle transformation is to eat milk-based protein in my evening meal.  Milk-based protein is slow to digest, which means that it trickles into your blood stream over a period of hours, instead of being digested quickly, like a whey protein.  Usually you want to get nutrients into your muscles as fast as possible, but, since you’re not eating for eight hours while you sleep, you want to slow the process down so your muscles don’t starve during the “fast” that your morning break-“fast” breaks.

My night time meal of choice was nonfat, plain Greek yogurt with cinnamon.

Plain (unflavored) yogurt has very few carbs, as opposed to yogurt with fruit or another flavor and, being nonfat, it is about as close to a pure-protein meal as possible.

I chose to eat Greek yogurt because it has about twice as many grams of protein as a similar amount of normal yogurt, so I ate one large container of Greek yogurt every day during my transformation — Half in my pre-workout smoothie and half directly before going to bed at night.

I added cinnamon for flavor.  Plain Greek yogurt doesn’t taste “bad” without cinnamon, but I added it to make this evening meal more of a treat or dessert that I could look forward to during the day.

All in all, two cups (half a large container) of Greek yogurt provides 240 calories in the form of 44 grams of protein, 18 grams of carbs and less than half a gram of fat.

 

That’s it for today, until next time, go out there and be awesome!
