    Carb timing


    How late do you guys take in complex carbs on a bulk? Do you switch over to mainly veggies in the pm or stick with the complex carbs all day?

    my last two meals are normally my veggie meals... but i suppose it would all depend on your body type and goals

    so 5 or 6ish is usually my last meal of carbs for the day

    It should depend on when you're training and how your body responds to carbs.

    agreed.

    Some people can take carbs in at night while others cannot. Depends on the person. I don't have a problem with carbs at night but some do. If your having problems with carbs at night have your last carb meal before 6 PM. that should be a safe number.
