I agree. Especially in the context you're getting it in with the protein and fat and the slow digesting nature of it. The benefits really outweigh any slight risk, and 5 grams of carbs in that context is hardly risky at all, imo.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Good to hear. Even though I ate that last night, I still woke up this morning starving. That usually doesnt happen.

BTW, there is talk about casein causing an insulin spike or something? I don't know. I really think if we think that much about every little thing we may as not eat at all! I would tend to think that waking up hungry would be a good thing. Wouldn't that mean your metabolism is running fast?

You can drive yourself crazy worrying over every little maco nutrient and when to eat it.

There's not enough carbs in cottage cheese to do squat.

Thats what I was thinking, but then again it could mean i am slipping into a starvation state when I'm asleep ... in which case insulin resistance in fat cells is high. also good.

I'm really beating a dead horse here () but you really have nothing to worry about with the carbs in cottage cheese. I personally love cottage cheese as a late night snack and eat it without any worry about the carbs in it.

In all reality, even if you were to have a scoop of ordinary protein powder you would get somewhere in the same range carbs wise. For example ON 100% Whey has 3 grams per scoop and their 100% Casein has 4 grams per scoop. Little facts like that always send me back to reality when I start worrying over tiny amounts of carbs.
