I don't think you really end up using it very effectively because it digests so fast (basically more protien ends up in the toilet bowl the next day than built muscle while sleeping) and I don't want anything terribly glycemic before sleep.

Also, from reading this The Rules Of Productive Weight Training For The Drug-Free Trainee Muscle and Brawn Bodybuilding and Powerlifting.

So, that's why I don't like to consume whey before bed.
