I recently gave a list of the best proteins to use at night-time. It’s a really useful article and I highly recommend you read it here.
To recap, I said that in order to stay anabolic all night and fuel growth, you should be opting for:
Or any combination of these. These are the top 4 night-time proteins in my opinion.
The top 4 night-time protein sources are eggs, fish, beef, and chicken - fact Click To Tweet
I concluded: At bedtime you should eat around 45g protein (if not a little more) from eggs, fish, beef, or chicken.At bedtime you should eat 45g protein from eggs, fish, beef, chicken to stay anabolic all night Click To Tweet
But what about losing fat? Are there superior protein sources for this task? Yep. Let’s have a look at the top 5…
Eggs top the list as a perfect protein source. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re bulking or cutting, eggs are the best ‘real food’ source of protein.
Additionally they are a great Source of B Vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin E, and Choline.
Unlike night-time eating when whey is not a good option (see here fore more), you should definitely be supplementing with whey when cutting.
Whey has the highest bio-availability of all proteins on the planet.
It will help you preserve muscle tissue when on low calories, and increase protein synthesis levels after training. It will also help shut down the catabolic process once you finish training.
In fact, you should start sipping your post-workout shake DURING your training. The catabolic process starts from set 1, guys. It makes more sense to get that fast-acting whey in early. It’s what I do – see my post on my intra-workout shake here.
With a higher protein content than chicken, it’s also very filling/satiating.
You’ll feel fuller for longer with turkey. Chicken is still a great option when cutting, though. I eat loads of turkey and chicken when torching fat.
Halibut has the highest protein content of all fish (tuna is almost virtually the same).
Halibut is also a rich source of vitamins B-6, B-12, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. You can also opt for tuna, as I do many times.
NATURAL GREEK YOGURT
Greek yogurt is high in protein and gives a welcome change from eating so much meat and eggs. Add some sweetener (stevia) and some berries (as they are low in carbs and calories) for something that tastes like a dessert…but is actually helping you shred fat.
NOTE: You’ll want to check out a recent post in which I revealed how not to lose muscle when cutting.
SERIOUS ABOUT GETTING RIPPED?
For a program that already takes into account the best protein sources for cutting, AND gives you the optimal balance of carbohydrates and fats, all within the context of a caloric deficit diet, you don’t need to look any further than my Total Six Pack Abs program.
Even better, I’m so confident if the results that I offer a full 8-week money-back guarantee, so there is absolutely no financial risk on your part. You either succeed, or you get your money back with no questions asked.
Instead of losing your hard-earned muscle tissue and looking like someone who has been malnourished for a few months, how about looking like Al Siebert did at the end of his cut? See his pics below…
Or perhaps, you’d like to look like wrestler “The Cougar Kid” at the end of his TSPA cut? Pretty good, eh?
