Diet You can easily enhance your HGH levels by barely even having to alter your diet. As mentioned before, while you’re in deep sleep is when the highest amounts of HGH are released but what you need to pay attention to is what you’re eating just before you go to bed. The last meal of your day should contain lots of protein and minimal fat and sugar. The fat and sugar are macronutrients and hinder the ability for the HGH to release properly. Protein provokes the release of HGH and helps provide your body with the right amino acids in order to build new bone tissue and muscle. Casein proteins are the best choice for those late night meals just before bed. You can find casein proteins in foods such as cottage cheese and has more protein than milk. There are also casein protein powders so those who do not like the foods such as cottage cheese can still get their casein proteins using the powder. Insulin release can hinder HGH release and certain foods will actually release insulin, like carbohydrates. Unfortunately, obesity can 39 decrease HGH release. If you are a bit overweight you can solve this problem by changing your diet so you can target a more healthy weight.
