Need advice on eating b4 bed!! PLZ
I am having a hard time reaching my total macros. When I get out of work (10-1030pm) i still need about 50g-P 75g-C and 25g-F to reach my daily macros.
Not knowing if this is the right way to do it or not, I haven't been consuming the last 50/75/25 before bed b/c i am worried it will turn to straight fat and take away all my definition. Although i will eat a can of tuna.....
If i eat a clean meal consisting of the 50p/75c/25f (eggs/chicken, oats, natty pb, etc) i need to get to my daily macros at 11pm and goto bed at 12:30, will it be beneficial to my body or will my body turn the energy (carbs) into fat??
any help, or personal suggestions would be great!!

Why would it turn straight to fat?http://anabolicminds.com/forum/training-forum/198788-highschool-athlete-thread.html

If you have to eat at night, make sure that it contains a good amount of protein and a bit of carbs and fats.

If you need it to meet macros then it wont turn to fat. You know, your body is still working even when your asleep

i dont eat many carbs before bed.... it depends on what type of carbs your eating, if your having white rice or white bread its going to cause an insulin spike which may be stored as fat, if you want carbs before bed make sure they are low glycemic..fats... just have a teaspoon of peanut butter or some almonds, and for protein have a casein shake.... what i do before bed is 9 egg white then an hour later(legit right before bed) a casein shake maybe a tsp of peanut butter

your body doesnt turn off like an appliance when you sleep, heck rem sleep is almost as active as being awake, your still converting diatomic oxygen into n-CO2, your circulatory systen including your heart is still going, your hydrophobic cell walls are regulating your salt level..

glucose as a sugar has to be converted into fat which takes energy and the cycle that makes C6H12O6 also requires energy in the from of ATP and the Cycle that folllows the glocuse cycle requires energyOriginally Posted by Benjamin1

Your bodys have a (if what limited) capacity to store glucose in the form of muscle, liver or blood glycogen; so if these are depleted by 100gs (as an example) then you eat 100gs of CHO, it will most likely store in glycogen as it is much more effecient for the body to store it as glycogen and not as fat.
The body doesnt try make you fat at every turn, when you overload glycogen stores then maybe the spillover will be converted to fat, so long as the body doesnt need that extra to fulfill energy requirements

I do the complete opposite of this. Lots of white rice, turnovers, cake, pudding, pizza, and whatever else you can think of. Then I wake up looking lean.Originally Posted by chil

It is called Carb Back Loading. The gist of it is ULTRA low carbs before you work out. Then post workout chow down on lots of fast carbs basically till I go to sleep. Plus I don't eat breakfast.Originally Posted by chil

I have the same question but I'm not trying to hit numbers at that point. I just don't like my last meal being 6pm and not eating again till 6am. So I've been drinking 2 cups of low fat milk cuz from what I've read its about 80% casein. Anybody tried milk before bed? Do say I don't wake up starving. Just slight hunger.

Just figure out calorie maintainence and anything at this amount, 500kcals above or under it should not convert to fat. Too much over and you run the risk

I sometimes set an alarm to wake me up to have a premade shake or sandwich when I run short on my macros.

It really does depend on what your needs are and how soon after your workout.
OP: Since you are trying to meet your macros, are just getting off of work, and are waiting 1.5 hrs from the time you eat to when you get to bed, I wouldn't worry too much. I would maybe adjust your macros slightly so that your carbs for the last meal aren't quite as high. Not much though, I'd redistribute 25g so that you're only needing to eat 50g before bed. Regardless, make sure they are only complex.
For a couple of other situations:
1. If you are training late at night, don't worry about the carbs. You need them and your body will be putting them to use.
2. If don't train late, but have 3-5 hours between your last meal and bed eat some protein and fat. My two favorites are cottage cheese or Omega 3 eggs.

Not sure to be honest but it takes me 30 seconds to pound a shake or maybe a couple minutes to eat a sandwich so I don't disturb to much as I am still able to surplus at least 8 hrs a night and with the 1.5-2 gallons of water a day it gives me a chance to relieve some pressure anyways. I would love to hear some opinions on this though as I am definitely not a professional.Originally Posted by krakken

If you train at night I wouldn't worry to much about getting complex carbs. I wouldn't pig out on candy and ice cream, but white rice, potatos, pasta would all be good options.Originally Posted by Benjamin1
