Default A little question about protein before bed

I spend a lot of time on various sites digging through forums seeing what other active people are up to. I'm at a point where I need to shake up my routines every few months in order to shed another pound or two.

That being said, I see a lot about people eating protein before bed. I've subscribed to the "no eating 2-3 hours before bed" rule for quite some time and was wondering if anyone knows if eating a little protein can help with weight loss.

I've read that slow-absorbing protein (like casein, as opposed to typical whey protein) is good. It gives your body something to go on while you're sleeping all night, seeing as how you're basically fasting that whole time. I was just wondering if this might be something I could try to shake up my routine. Specifically, I tend to get up and jog first thing one or two days a week, so if I were to eat a little protein before bed, would it give me a leg up on that morning run? (otherwise I tend to take it easy since I tend to get hungry while running and have less energy from not having eaten yet)

Any info is always appreciated! Thanks!
