Eating protein before bed will help to build muscle therefore help to burn fat while you sleep.
Well, muscle growth requires two things: a stimulus and the raw materials.
Training your muscles is a stimulus, of course, but so is eating protein. Both of these things tell your body to build and repair muscle, and you need both to increase your total lean mass over time.
Amino acids, which are obtained through eating protein, are the raw materials that muscle tissue is built from.
If no amino acids are available for use, your body can’t build any muscle. This is why research has shown that, if protein isn’t eaten before bed, protein synthesis rates are quite low when we sleep.
This, then, leads us to how eating protein before bed helps you build muscle and strength faster:
It gives your body amino acids to use for repair while you sleep.
A more accurate statement would be that protein before bed can help you follow a high-protein diet, which can help you lose weight faster.
