I promise your muscles wont fall off . Mine havent.
ah makes sense now, but what are your thoughts on taking casein before bedtime? even if i get the right about of nutrients during the day isn't it true while sleeping your body is in a fasting state? From what i read you want to still feed your body it slowly with protein still. Right now I'm taking in 1500-1600 calories during the day which is where i want to be. Thanks for your help you seem pretty knowledgable on this stuff
