Meals after 6pm ???
Hey guys I need some soild ideas for meals after 6pm . I'm trying to bulk up gettin about 3400 cals a day and about 350 carbs a day which I can't get it to 400 like I need to . This is mostly because I gain fat really easy on my midsection so I can't do carbs after 6pm so this doesn't give me alot of time to get my 400g of carbs in before . I know most carbs after 6pm turn into fat so I need some good meal idea for after 6pm thanks guys !

That's a myth that carbs after 6 turn to fat.

It is almost impossible to understand you, let alone help you if you persist in abbreviating the meaning out of everything you are trying to say. That and punctuation is a Godsend.Originally Posted by Drope26

Meal timing is largely irrelevant regarding body composition, if you are gaining weight it means you are eating far too high over maintenance calsOriginally Posted by Drope26

I'm pretty sure your metabolism doesn't slow down through the day either. Where did you get that one? lol

Why is 6pm the magic fat storing number?.. My body doesn't know the time, it continues to work 24/7. Always metabolically active, always working.
Just eat after 6pm. And just FYI, even protein can be stored as fat

I'd recommend you read John Kiefer's Carb Backloading book. It gets highly technical at times as he delves into the bio chemistry involved with insulin sensitivity, but long story short, your body is actually less likely to store excess carbs as fat in the evening, especially after training.
The don't eat in the evening is Oprah/Jillian Michaels "conventional wisdom" bull****.

If your carb sensitive then having a lower carb intake over-all for the day wouldn't be a bad idea. Carbs after 6 don't turn to fat but I would say carbs RIGHT BEFORE YOU SLEEP will turn to fat.
All in all, so long as your at a deficit at the end of the day your going to loose fat. Since your trying to bulk, having carbs before bed wouldn't be bad at all. Just depends on how sensitive you are to carbs. Find out what carb intake works for you. Whatever that number is, who cares if its before bed or at what time....so long as your meeting your macros and calorie target you'll grow without putting on extra fat. Just make sure you are spot on with your macros and don't have TOO MUCH of a caloric surplus so you can promote lean gains.

Crap the majority of my carbs come after 6pm AND I eat a huge ol bunch of em right before bed...gonna get fat.
Sorry for the sarcastic reply but looks like most of the people in here helped you in the correct way. For the vast majority of people worrying too much about minor things is just irrelevant. Search around I am sure you can find some good resources and PM me if you need more help.

As everybody else said, carbs don't make you fat after a certain amount of time.
As for the insulin spike caused by carbs and the inhibition of GH.. somebody elaborate on this for me please.
