Greetings and welcome to the BioTRUST Health Bites, your home for easy-to-make recipes that are healthy, nutritious and delicious along with practical, effective health tips to fuel your wellness and fitness goals.
Why You SHOULD Eat Before Bed (Myth Busted)
Okay, before we dive into our last recipe, I want to bust a common myth and give you a powerful health tip all at once. If you’ve ever heard that you shouldn’t eat before bed, I’ve got news for you: You don’t have to go to bed hungry. In fact, choosing the right foods before bed can be highly beneficial for weight management, appetite control, losing unwanted fat, building calorie-burning muscle and improving metabolic health.
Considering that we’re talking all about protein today, it may not come as much of a surprise that it is a top choice for a nighttime snack.
Research shows that a small, protein-rich snack providing about 30 – 40 grams of protein is ideal to support metabolism and better body composition.
A low carb protein shake is just one of many delicious ways you can enjoy your BioTrust Low Carb protein powder. There’s an endless variety of high-protein smoothies you can create using BioTrust Low Carb protein powder as your foundation.
