I read somewhere that eating carbs before bed will prevent a release of a certain growth hormone that only acts within the first hour of sleep, I have an idea that this hormone is more to do with fat burning that anything else but I don't know. The reason I don't know is because I forgot the name of the hormone and only remember two things: "no carbs before bed" and thinking that this rule may not apply to me because of the context of the article - it was one RE. fat burning in FLEX UK. I cannot remember the name of the main article but the name os the sub article in which the rule was contained was called "split diet for leanness". And no, I do not have the magazine to hand, I gave it away as I thought I had soaked all the info up - maybe because loosing fat is never much of a bother to me (I play rugby anyway) I probably subconciously switched off.

Please inform me.

Cheers

Eating carbohydrates before bed is not a problem. If you're going to eat before bed there's no getting around eating some carbohydrates, and for that matter, some protein and fat as well.. It's called food.

While it is true in the absolute sense that GH release can be dose-dependantly suppressed via elevated blood sugar, insulin and somatostatin from eating fats, the actual overall physiologic significance or lack thereof tends to get overexaggerated. Mind you, there is also a rebound effect as a result of the initial suppression
