    Uh...need some more info buddy. What are your goals? Gaining muscle (sounds like it), or losing weight? How much poundage are you looking to put on or lose? How big are you? What is your current diet and exercise regime like?

    That said, I'll take a shot in the dark. I'm guessing you're trying to bulk up, in which case a casein protein shake (as opposed to whey) is good before bed, really as close to bedtime as you want as long as it doesn't keep you up. You could also add a little bit of simple carbs (not too much, or you'll get fat) to that to trigger the insulin. Some shakes already have that though.

    Casein and cottage cheese are good recommendations. I also like to have some almonds along with my source of (slow-digesting) protein; especially if you're bulking, almonds or other healthy nuts are great fats to have before bed.

    depending on the rest of your diet it could be anything, personally i would go with protein or protein and fat like some eggs. This depends on a lot. Casein protein would be easy though, or a custom mix.
