Protein before bed is good at it can be used to build muscle while you sleep. Bananas are high in carbs and would be better for breakfast. If you are trying to gain weight, you should be trying to add muscle first. That needs protein.

Hi! try looking at my brief nutrition guide to keep your energy levels good for working out. you can view it by scrolling down in the diet and nutrition forum.

a varied diet is as you will know a good idea and cereals are a good supper snack for slow release carbs but if you want something lighter on your stomach fruit is probably a good thing to have.

please let me know what you think.

I think the key at bedtime is slow release whether its carbs or protein. So many cereals are highly processed or high in sugar they are unsuitable. If its something like oatmeal or bran cereal with milk it makes sense. A banana, berries or raisons on top for sweetening is also good.
