    Its more about your over all caloric intake for the week. I mean you would be better off eating a candy bar post workout instead of before bed...but neither will really hurt you if your calories are low enough..


    I hope that made sense posting from a sauna....

    Obviously if your going to eat sugar it would be better to place whatever sugar laden food you plan on consuming, in your post workout meal.

    Now if your overall caloric need is 2200 calories and you eat a sleeve of pop-tarts prior to bed which puts you at 2000 calories, i wouldnt expect you to get fat.

    Its about caloric needs but obviously there are better times to consume certain things.

    That's true, with meals it's adding to what you need in calories. Post workout for carbs and body replenishment is the optimal time to take in sugars. In another note, not a big fan of poptarts, but that new carl's jr - hardee's tart-ice cream looks delicious though..

    Something you could always make that I recently just made was a big protein smoothy.

    What I used:
    Handful of Ice Cubes
    1 TBSP of Almond Butter
    1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
    2 Scoops iForce Chocolate Truffle

    Took care of my craving for ice cream and filled me up.

    In calorie front loading with a weightloss client u have them begin the day with a good amount of carbs to start the day and then by the time their last meal comes around they should have little or no carbs. Which makes since since carbs are used for a main fuel source In your body so u shouldn't introduce them to ur body when you simply going to go to sleep.

    No, back loading might be for weight gain. but of course everyones different so just do what is best for you. I personally like an even amount of my macros throughout the day.

    Lol that's fine. Basics-

    Caloric surplus= weight gain
    Deficit/maintenance (including caloric expenditure)= weight loss

    LG/IF and CBL take in a majority of there kcalories/carbs at night time. Personally I eat 3 rather large meals with snacks in between (almonds/ fruits). But, it sounds like you need to brush up a little on "diets" and studies/misconceptions

    yea man, came to this website to learn. and I have realized the fitness industry is filled with misconceptions!

    I know about caloric surpluses and deficits haha, I am about to be a certified trainer in a short amount of time but I completely understand I need to learn a crap ton, especially in the nutrition field, to be efficient for myself and future clients. And in the class im taking the trainers briefly went over carb front loading and back loading so i may have gotten some information mixed up.

    I read an article that had a study in it that proved this to be wrong and suggested to eat your carbs around your workout. I totally forget where I read it though.

    It's obviously common sense to have carbs around your workouts, what are other energy source would you use!

    yea eat the highest amount of carbs when you wake up to give you energy for the day, then before your workout, and after your workout the rest should be spread out through the rest of the day and your final meal should little to no carbs. I never said not to do that, just said to go to sleep with no carbs and to begin ur day with carbs.

    And for someone who should be a fitness enthusiast you should understand that there is a ton of things that work for some people that might not work for others. And my idea might not work for y'all but that doesn't make wrong. And I'm not shooting you all down. Respect my opinion like I respect yours please.
