Eating Cottage Cheese Before Bed May Boost Your Metabolism
New research from Florida State University suggests that eating cottage cheese before going to bed may boost metabolism and strengthen the muscle and immune system due to the high content of protein.
For the study, a team of researchers checked the effect of eating cottage cheese before bed on 10 women aged between 20 and 30. Each woman ate 30g (1oz) of cottage cheese 30–60min before sleep.
Having analyzed the results of tests, the scientists concluded that women’s bodies were just as efficient after cottage cheese as when they were given a casein shake before bed.
The study author Professor Michael Ormsbee says: “Until now, we presumed whole foods would act similarly to the data on supplemental protein, but we had no real evidence. This is important because it adds to the body of literature that indicates whole foods work just as well as protein supplementation. And it gives people options for pre-sleep nutrition that go beyond powders and shaker bottles.”
