Ideal Protein Diet - Super Hungry Instantly After Waking Up

Hi all! I'm new to the IP protocol, but not this website, and I've loved reading all of the informative posts on this forum!

Question, last night, I had a protein shake (Premier Protein, 30g) right before bed. I woke up STARVING!!!! Is this normal or should I try having the protein shakes an hour or two before bed?

I apologize if this question has been asked before.

Thanks in advance!!!

I've noticed that if I eat right before bed I also wake up starving. Try having your shake 2 hours before bed and see if it makes a difference.

How long ago did you start the IP diet?? I know I was starving in the first few days, it take a while to adjust but it will. :) Also it would be a good idea to not eat right before bed I agree with ragdoll74, try it 2 hrs before bed.

I do 30 mins before bed and I am good.

Thank you for your responses.

I started on 3/26 so only been on for a few days. I'll try to have my last shake a couple hours before bed and see if the starvation goes away. LOL!

Thanks again.
