Weight Lifting @ night & eating.

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. You are going to be in a state of glycogen depletion. Now how much does depend on when you last ate before the workout and how many carbs you had in that meal. For me, it has always been better to eat a reasonable amount of carbs post workout even when training late. With that said, I tend not to eat carbs preworkout either. Hope that helps a bit.


  2. It really depends on "what" you eat. I'd say eating a big steak 20 minutes before bed would not be a good thing. Takes the body longer to break it down and that would interfere with quality sleep. But, your own body metabolism is the bigger key. If you have a higher metabolism and good digestive tract then the absorption of the nutrients will be faster. Age also plays a role.

    I would rather eat a whole steak before bed rather then have a glass of chocolate milk....

    Digestion isn't the problem. It's not going to interfere with sleep THAT much... inducing a huge insulin spike with your fast digesting food on the other hand would most certainly interfere with gh release and possibly quality of sleep...

    Really, what matters more then anything, is that your replenishing glycogen stores and providing enough protein for repairing and growing new muscle

  6. Now mind you this was High School. I used to lift about 9pm and come home around 10:30pm and smash 2 cans of tuna and 4-6 pieces of whole wheat bread before I went to bed. Never really had an issues, was moderate with carb intake during the day.

    I would think the addition of modern GDA, like AP, would help with any issues of an abundant release of insulin.

    FWIW the Carb Back Loading way of thinking says the opposite which is eat the high glycemic foods at night so that insulin raises and falls quickly for sleep time which will allow for the GH release and solid sleep.

    ...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.

  17. just eat like you would usually post workout
