Most importantly is to watch the fat at this point – thus I would rather eat fat free cottage cheese and no peanut butter – leave the peanut butter for breakfast or lunchtime.
There is no hard and fast rule, however many body builders prefer not to consume any carbs before bedtime. I know it is the total amount of calories per day that matters and in the ratios of 40-60% protein, 15-25% protein and never more than 20% fat. Thus your cottage cheese with fat free milk is perfect given that it is in line with your daily calorie need. Re you fat intake it is best to add your good fats to your lunch and dinner as you split the amount and the obvious intake of saturated fats from your protein will then also fall in line with those meals. It is extremely important that of the 20% fat calories per day two thirds are made up from good fats (avo, olives, olive oil, nuts & seeds).
