    Is Eating Carbs At Night Bad?

    I'm currently bulking and have about 650 calories to meet my macros before I sleep (1-2 hours).

    I'm at my fat limit but have room for both carbs and protein. A couple of my friends told me not to consume carbs this late into the night as it may just end up turning into fat.

    Is this correct or are they full of broscience? I found this article by Layne Norton which says this is BS.

    Just because the carbs turn to fat unless they are used as energy. Carbs aren't neccessarily bad but eating alot of them while sitting on your ass will make you fat. I'd avoid them unless they are post workout.

    EDIT: Red, phaggot^^

    It's broscience; however, it does interfere with GH production (Not a big deal, just min-maxing)

    Guys, why does Layne say this at the end? Isn't he contradicting himself?

    "However, I think what can be said with relative certainly is the notion that consuming carbohydrates at night will lead to more fat gain, or impair fat loss compared to consuming them at other times of the day."

    eating carbs for me past 7PM causes more facial fat. or just eating in general past 7.

    hes basically saying how a study showed that eating 80 percent of your carbs before bed may actually be beneficial to fat loss but this is not supported by enough data to be a fact yet, but without a doubt the myth of carbs before bed causing fat gain is definitely busted

    From Leangains:

    10. Myth: "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch a queen, dinner like a pauper."


    Truth

    Also connected to this saying, is the belief that you should reduce carbs in the evening as they will be less likely to be stored as fat. While this might sound good on paper, there's nothing to support it and a lot that shows it to be wrong.

    The strongest argument against this are the numerous studies available on body composition and health after and during Ramadan fasting. This meal pattern of regular nightly feasts has a neutral or positive effect on body fat percentage and other health parameters. This is quite an extreme and telling example. People literally gorge on carbs and treats in the middle of the night to no ill effect. And yet, in the bizarre world of bodybuilding and fitness, people worry whether it's OK to eat 50 grams of carbs in their last meal.

    If the scientific data on Ramadan fasting aren't enough, there are plenty of other studies showing no effect on weight loss or weight gain from eating later in the day.

    In one study comparing two meal patterns, which involved one group eating more calories earlier in the day and one group eating most calories later in the day, more favorable results were found in the group eating large evening meals. While those who ate more in the AM lost more weight, the extra weight was in the form of muscle mass. The late evening eaters conserved muscle mass better, which resulted in a larger drop in body fat percentage.



    I have been eating most my carbs for dinner for a while now and I've been dropping bodyfat. Carb intake being bad at night = myth imo.

    This. Broscience. This is how im currently cutting. I stick to lean protein and 20-25 net carbs all day and eat a big carb meal before bed (after 7 pm). I guess it's like IF but Im losing fat from it.

    EDIT: I believe this originated from people getting all their carbs in during the day, and still eating them late at night (like sweets). This is when your glycogen storage is full, and the extra carbs will eventually store as fat. Your body doesn't know what time it is though. As long as you hit your calories and macros before bed, you're fine.
