I read the bodybuilding article posted earlier. Im going to start cycling my meals, i.e one will have protein/fat , and another meal will have protein/carbs to promote insulin sensitivity and possibly fat loss while bulking. A question i had is carb intake at night bad? ive heard it was a few places that it packs on fat. Am hoping to manage to bulk another 15lbs and bring my body fat down 6-7% to about overall 9-10% bodyfat.

Too much protein for nothing.. go for at leat 40/40/20 or 40/35/25... which one work best for you. But 50 protein is too high IMO

I used to split macros into meals and all I noticed was softness and extreme hunger during the day due to the low fat intake then at night I was always full caus of all the fat.

In my opinion - you can't make up all of one macronutrient "later" in the day. That's like starving yourself of protein all day then just eating it all in like 2 meals. No.

Have carbs, protein and fat at EACH meal. Maybe besides PWO if they run an hour plus.

Yup, just an unneeded added headache IMO.

Ummm...unless you're waiting 12 hours between meals, it's going to end up together in your stomach and intestinal tract anyway. Your entire digestive system doesn't just empty itself every 2 hours, it takes a long time for a meal to pass through you.
