    Coach Greg need clarification about grams of protein. I currently weigh 320lbs cutting down to 280 and I wanted to know if I need 1g per pound of body weight or grams per lean mass or does it matter? I currently get about 235 grams of protein while staying in the calorie deficit need for fat loss. Does it seem ok to you due to me wanting to retain as much muscle as possible? I keep getting conflicting information about it. Any feedback from you would be appreciated just want to be healthy and you clearly seem like the guy to ask. Thanks, also I weigh that much from powerlifting but goal now is to lower body fat%

    Well a problem I have with protein before bed, is that if I eat protein before bed I tend to have problems sleeping


    Used to workout in the late evening, back in college and would fill myself up with eggs for the protein right before bed. I remember having a lot of trouble falling asleep in those days. There were multiple reasons for the low sleep quality but eating that much hot and protein-rich food, right before bed definitely was a major contributor. Not to mention, that was of course my biggest protein meal of the day, probably the only one.

    I can speak from experience that when u consume a large portion of protein before bed you will develop the worst night sweats you’ve ever had and wake up soaked wondering whether u pissed the bed or not . To much protein before bed will spike your body temperature and disrupt sleep

    I work midnights so I work out 8 am then a 35g protein shake then go to bed. Just get protein when you can it’s not rocket science.Some people just talk bullshit to get views. Greg and Derrick are the best.

    There will always be people who like putting people and everything into a box. They're lazy and just want to be told what to do without thinking. Reality is not so clear cut. You're videos are all spot on. How do I know? Not only am I a physician (MD kind) as well as degrees and extensive work in molecular biology and Physics. Dont sweat it. I've noticed you don't give absolutes which makes you more correct than 99% of these guys.

  • Sniper474

    And then there are people who tell us we should eat extremely high protein amounts and only sleep 2 hours a night lol xD

  • Halfofmyheart

    My brother, who is a body builder, always told me (I workout 5 days a week to stay lean and toned) to have a low fat, lower calorie, high protein snack before bed. It works well for the both of us!

  • unwantedemi

    I love how people don’t listen or just hear what they want. Coach.G! Thanks

  • Daniel Calma
    Daniel Calma

    Guys it's ezpz. Just have a nice single serving of Greek yogurt as your snack before bed. Puts the casein guys at ease and it's a nice amount of protein that won't interrupt your sleep👍

  • You2uber

    As long as you are not lactose intolerant and have no problems digesting milk 2 large cups of milk before bedtime would supply you with hydration and about 20gr of slow absorbed protein... its almost as if they knew what they were doing in the golden era...

  • You2uber

    Simple answer is yes.

      Eat protein non stop , or better have perfusable protein going in your bloodstream at all time for perfect anabolism.

  • brady 123

    Gregg, what about carbs at night? I work out late from 8-9:30 pm I always have protein after, should I save some carbs for a post workout being that late at night? You should do a video on glycogen reload (simple/complex) after workouts for us late night gym goers.

    • brady 123
      brady 123

      @Beetle Grounds I have a hard time believing that. If I work out late and deplete my glycogen source and only consume protein, which can convert to glycogen, I don't think while I sleep which is optimal for repair and growth, that a little carbs at night - IF YOU WORK OUT late you'd want to have some form of carbs to assist. If you work out early and eat csrbs after to restore your glycogen then I could see avoiding csrbs at night.

    • Beetle Grounds
      Beetle Grounds

      @brady 123 that's why you eat protein for, if you eat 4-5 meals a day with 20+ it's enough for any process your body will ever need when it comes to muscle building.

    • brady 123
      brady 123

      @Beetle Grounds because it helps repair, and muscle sparing. If I work out at 9pm-10:30pm I'd assume a little carbs will help spare the protein I consume, and assist in repair. But that's why I'm asking him, because im unsure.

    • Beetle Grounds

    I've been taking casein before I go to sleep since it has the slower break-down of protein versus whey, etc.. That way you have the elevated amino acid release to keep going while you're sleeping. That being said, it's not a huge amount (I'm not backloading).

  • Jeff Morabito

    Casein protein before bed is best for muscle growth and performance! The amount is based on body mass index. 40 grams is good for a 200lb person.

  • Slappy

    I often times eat a self made tuna salad before bed, it has around 70g protein, is that too much 😅?

    • Beetle Grounds
      Beetle Grounds

      Do you feel like you have problems falling asleep? If so, it might be too much, if not, it's not, simple.

  • zerothehero123

    Well I'd like to but I don't want to mess up my circadian rhythm. I'm a light, bad sleeper so I have to be strict with this stuff.

  • gammypage

    You're going to shred your voice doing this all the time no..? I actually liked your videos in your old house the best the ones near to but before when you moved. Closer to the mic so you didnt need to shout to be heard. Your normal voice is soothing, the shouting shrieking gets annoying no offense.

  • gammypage

    I liked your old videos where you actually spoke normally, and occasionally turned it up, this style is too much sounds silly tbh and cartoonish.. Love your videos for the quality information. Thanks

  • Alex Kamen

    When you’re trained, MPS only lasts 16 hours. Good idea to eat a little bit more protein before bed because you’re fasted for a few hours before waking up. Just think about it Greg. It’s not just the total protein through the day. It’s also timing. Come on

  • MR Insensitive
    MR Insensitive

    All these people hating on coach Greg. What a bunch of jelly pansies. Jealous AF. It’s an ugly look for y’all. But it just affirms Everything Greg says. And his data is based on science & experience. Some people are going to spend their entire life acting like a fruit loop.

    Would like to add eating right before bed hinders growth hormone release during your sleep, which is essential for growth.


    Why do you shout at everything? Your gains are going to explode. Stay off the juice dude.

    I've been listening and watching your UZload channel for a little while now, and all I'm wondering is your voice just an act, or is this how you are normally? Forget waterboarding, just play the audio version of Greg's cookbook to get people to break! 😂

    What we know one thing is muscle protein synthesis and one other thing is muscle breakdown, so when you probably won't eat 8 hours or ten even 11 hours, if you sleep like 9 hours and you eat 1 hour before you sleep, and one hour after you wake up, you could eat like 50 grams before bed and 40 in the rest of the meals,

    you got destroyed HARD by alpha destiny. and you never made an apology video saying you are wrong. therefore I have lost lots of my respect for you so did everyone that watched Alex alpha destiny and that proved to me that you do this youtube thing for money and not the people. Because if it was about the people, you would want them to know the right info therefore you would make a video where you would re-state your points AND would not have cherry-picked his points. you CON ARTIST :)

    Half of derek's subs are actually smart people trying to gain more knowledge. The other half are just anti greg drones that think they are smart, but are still morons and jump on hating. It's okay, soon they'll judge information based on their own research. If Derek is the more tolerable Greg. Jeremy is the kid tries to copy Jeff Nippard but isn't smart enough to interpret data.

    You are assuming Jeremy is doing it only for negative issues like to make money or to just get more views. Not everyone is right 99.8 like you coach, maybe he just misinterpreted and just messed up. He does seem to genuinely care and tries to give good info. He can be wrong sure that's normal we all make mistakes but to say he does it with a negative intention is flat out wrong. Not only are a lot of these studies always debatable but he most of the time explains that there are counter-arguments to his claims. Not saying he's right what he said but he does sound and does honestly look like he tries to help and give good info.

    1.5cups Fage 0% fat greek yogurt + 1/2cup Dark oats n chocolate granola protein from Nature valley before bed. Total 45g protein, excellent before bed, can even fit in your calorie budget when cutting and fills you so you don’t go to bed hungry.
