    ...key words in my post is "right before bed" and fast digesting simple sugars vs slow digesting protein source.

    I'm not saying that if you had 30min... 1hr.... 2hr.... in that case, of course quicker is better.

    Problem I'm having is I also work sometimes @ 8am so I am up for a bit and eating as well during the work day. When cutting (aka Fat Loss) theories suggest cutting carbs @ night (call it brosciene what ever) & to scale back on calories.
    That's fine but lifting @ night @ let's say 9pm and going to bed around 11-12pm should I be taking in a big meal post work out, should I still be eating my calories through out the day as well. I've been stuck on this and like some opinions.

    Some people claim to eat carbs @ night, others claims to not, some claim to have liquid meals @ night & cut off eating @ certain times, other do fasting...

    I don't want to comprise my work outs & I don't want be over eating either or at the "wrong times" e.g. Before bed. What would you folks suggest?

    I'm all ears...

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Back it up..I've come in dialed in and ripped in the morning after a 1000+ calorie meal. It not as much when u eat as much as it is WHAT you eat.

    Not directed at anyone in particular but man stop over analyzing the timing. GH is released during the workout so its best to get something down within an hour or so after training. Preferrably, a 50/50 split between carbs and protein. Carbs should be slow releasing IMO since ur talkin late night eating.

    A 300g sweet potato, 1TBSP MCT oil, & 8oz of chicken for example. Or maybe whole grain pancakes with sugar free syrup and a protein shake. Its not hard. If ur doin cardio on a regular basis you'll never have to worry about getting too fat regardless.

    Metabolism gets ramped by eating, not by starving.
