i've been riding consistently every morning for the last 2-3 weeks. I eat a little snack at night (usually string cheese, a bit of peanut butter and fruit) before bed but I think i need to eat more. I keep waking up hungry in the middle of the night (at 3am).
By the time I eat and fall back asleep, I lose about an hour of sleep which really throws a wrench for the ride I have planned (not to mention the rest of my day).
I want to get some kind of caesin based protein shake without all the carbs. Basically, I'm looking for a simple slow release protein.
I was thinking of going the peanut butter and a glass of milk route. I know there's a lot of fat, but the calorie count is still low and it will see me a few hours.
