Question: What does the Flaxseed/Fish Oil do for you at night? Thanks.
Nice work, it's a pain to lose weight, but you feel much better once it's off.
Prior to sleep (30 minutes or so), it's desirable to have a slow-digesting protein so that you get a release of aminos into your bloodstream - this helps prevent catabolism while you're getting your 8 hours of sleep. Casein powder or cottage cheese is one of the best forms of protein for this purpose. Add a little flaxseed oil to it, and it will slow the digestion rate of the casein/cottage cheese while you're sleeping.
