Default proteins before bedtime

I've heard that if someone were to snack in the evening that it might be better to eat high protein food since this might help weight loss ? Is this true ? Is that something we should encourage.

I tend to save my omelet breakfast for dinner and eat my higher in carb meal for breakfast. Honestly, I think a lot of it has to do with that it is very hard to get too full on high protein meals.

I don't think it so much helps with weight loss as eating carbs at night are mostly stored as fat, since you don't burn them off.

On another board that I'm on for bodybuilders and fitness models they tend to recommend low fat or fat free cottage cheese with a green apple. Even though a green apple has carbs it's higher on the GI list and the cottage cheese helps to make it burn slowly through the night so you don't get that insulin spike that we try to avoid when we are trying to lose weight.
