The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of casein supplementation (54 grams) in the morning (Casein-MOR) or evening (Casein-EVE) (90 minutes or less prior to sleep) on measures of body composition and exercise performance in trained men and women. Twenty-six healthy men and women who had been training regularly for greater than 12 months completed this 8-week study (mean±SD; Casein-MOR group [n=14, seven male, seven female]: 30.0±8.2 yr; 170.7±9.5 cm; 70.9±13.9 kg. Casein…

Daytime and nighttime casein supplements similarly increase muscle size and strength in response to resistance training earlier in the day: a preliminary investigation
Both NT and DT protein consumption as part of a 24-h nutrition approach are effective for increasing strength and hypertrophy, and support the strategy of achieving specific daily protein levels versus specific timing of protein ingestion for increasing muscle mass and performance.
Pre-sleep protein in casein supplement or whole-food form has no impact on resting energy expenditure or hunger in women
In active women, pre-sleep consumption of CC does not alter REE or RER more than a CP or PL beverage, and the metabolic response from whole-food protein do not differ from the metabolicresponse of liquid protein.
Lipolysis and Fat Oxidation Are Not Altered with Presleep Compared with Daytime Casein Protein Intake in Resistance-Trained Women.
Presleep PRO is a viable option for increasing PRO consumption in resistance-trained women because it does not blunt overnight lipolysis, and will therefore likely not lead to increases in subcutaneous abdominal fat.
Effects of Consuming Cottage Cheese or Casein Protein Beverage Before Sleep on Morning Appetite and Resting Energy Expenditure in Active, Collegiate-Aged Women
Investigation of the extent to which consumption of cottage cheese effects next-morning resting energy expenditure (REE) and appetite compared to isocaloric casein protein (CP) and a non-energy containing placebo (PL) when consumed before sleep in active, college-aged females found no significant differences.
Muscle-Related Effect of Whey Protein and Vitamin D3 Supplementation Provided before or after Bedtime in Males Undergoing Resistance Training
There is increasing evidence that dietary protein intake with leucine and vitamin D is an important factor in muscle protein synthesis. This study investigated the combined effects of consuming whey
Pre-Sleep Casein Supplementation, Metabolism, and Appetite: A Systematic Review
A summary of the main findings shows limited to no effects on metabolism or appetite when ingesting 24–48 g of casein 30 min before sleep, but data are limited, and future research is needed to clarify the relationships observed.
High-protein diets in trained individuals
It is the scientific opinion of the author that athletes should consume at least 2.2 g/kg/d of protein, which falls within the range commonly recommended by academic societies.
Pre-sleep casein protein ingestion: new paradigm in post-exercise recovery nutrition

Post-exercise ingestion of at least 40 g of casein protein, approximately 30 minutes before sleep and after a bout of resistance exercise in the evening, might be an effective nutritional intervention to facilitate muscle recovery.
Effects of Dietary Protein on Body Composition in Exercising Individuals
Overall, a high-protein diet appears to increase muscle accretion and fat loss and may have beneficial effects on bone when combined with exercise, and pre-sleep protein is a viable strategy to help achieve total daily protein goals.
Nutrition Recommendations for Bodybuilders in the Off-Season: A Narrative Review
This review evaluated the scientific literature and provides nutrition and dietary supplement recommendations for natural bodybuilders during the off-season phase that might yield ergogenic effects that can be beneficial for bodybuilders.


Influence of night-time protein and carbohydrate intake on appetite and cardiometabolic risk in sedentary overweight and obese women
The results of the present study reveal that night-time consumption of protein or carbohydrate by sedentary overweight and obese women improves their appetite measures but negatively affects insulin levels.
Night-time consumption of protein or carbohydrate results in increased morning resting energy expenditure in active college-aged men
Night-time consumption of WP, CP or CHO, in the hours close to sleep, elicits favourable effects on the next-morning metabolism when compared with that of a PLA in active young men.
The influence of nighttime feeding of carbohydrate or protein combined with exercise training on appetite and cardiometabolic risk in young obese women.
Nighttime feeding for 4 weeks did not impact insulin sensitivity (assessed via homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance) when combined with exercise training in obese women and exercise training increased lean mass and strength, decreased body fat, and improved mood state in all groups.
The effects of a high protein diet on indices of health and body composition – a crossover trial in resistance-trained men
In resistance-trained young men who do not significantly alter their training regimen, consuming a high protein diet over a 4-month period has no effect on blood lipids or markers of renal and hepatic function and there were no changes in performance or body composition.
The effects of consuming a high protein diet (4.4 g/kg/d) on body composition in resistance-trained individuals
This is the first interventional study to demonstrate that consuming 5.5 times the recommended daily allowance of protein has no effect on body composition in resistance-trained individuals who otherwise maintain the same training regimen.
A high protein diet (3.4 g/kg/d) combined with a heavy resistance training program improves body composition in healthy trained men and women – a follow-up investigation
Consuming a high protein diet in conjunction with a periodized heavy resistance training program may confer benefits with regards to body composition and there is no evidence that consuming a highprotein diet has any deleterious effects.
Effect of dietary protein content on weight gain, energy expenditure, and body composition during overeating: a randomized controlled trial.
Among persons living in a controlled setting, calories alone account for the increase in fat; protein affected energy expenditure and storage of lean body mass, but not body fat storage.
Greater stimulation of myofibrillar protein synthesis with ingestion of whey protein isolate v. micellar casein at rest and after resistance exercise in elderly men.
It is concluded that ingestion of isolated whey protein supports greater rates of MPS than micellar casein both at rest and after resistance exercise in healthy elderly men.
Protein ingestion before sleep improves postexercise overnight recovery.
This is the first study to show that protein ingested immediately before sleep is effectively digested and absorbed, thereby stimulating muscle protein synthesis and improving whole-body protein balance during postexercise overnight recovery.
