Can eating a majority of carbs/calories before bed cause fat gain?

I enjoy eating before bed, late at night. I've heard so many mixed things about this and wanted to know your guys' experience with this. I know you wont gain weight since IIFYM. But can you gain fat? And do the types of food matter that could lead to this fat gain?

Lactic Acid & Pyruvates on Ketogenic Diets?

I'm training for a triathlon and was encouraged to figure out a lactate threshold. From my understanding, the lactate build up (and Threshold) occurs when oxidation is limited, causing your body to temporarily convert pyruvates into lactate, which allows glucose breakdown--and thus energy...

What is the calculation for sodium intake?

I'm not interested in the one size fits all 1500-2300 mg recommendation.
