The Protein in cottage cheese is really slow digesting, so it is ideal to have right before bed to keep your metabolism going. Plus 1 c. of cottage cheese has 28 g of protein, so it is one of the cheapest sources of protein out there.
I also am shooting for 1-1.5g of protein a day per lb of body weight to try and build muscle while bulking. This means I have to shoot for 200-300 grams a day, which can sometimes be a difficult thing to do.
