    Yeah, I've never believed any of this anyway. My pre sleep snack has been two peanut butter and honey sandwiches on whole grain for the last 15 years. Maybe a big bowl of cereal if I choose. I've yet to meet any active guy that takes his fitness and way of living serious, be fat from eating nightly carbs.

    "It may very well be that the beneficial effects of the diet in this study was more associated with limiting carb dosing (and insulin secretion) to a single bolus rather than spreading them throughout the day."

    Exactly. Why on Earth would they NOT also have a group eating their carbs in the morning?

    I never paid great attention to this either, however I always attributed it to the fact that I worked out in the late afternoons/evenings, and it's all but fact that eating dirty (as long as fats are correctly proportioned in relation to carbs) after workout is more forgiving on your physique than any other time of the day, and may be beneficial at least performance-wise.

    There is that factor, too. I tend to eat a lot of proteins and fats in the morning and afternoon with minimal/med amount of carbs. Then dinner is usually a starchy/carb meal with my pb+h before bed with about 24oz of milk.

    Somehow I am breaking all the rules and am still lean and mean. LOL

    I imagine that such a study would in fact find that the difference between the two groups was limiting carb dosing to a single bolus rather than eating carbs at night.

    Where one would be more beneficial than the other would depend on a number of factors, including if any degree of fasting occurred prior to the consumption of carbs; and what time of day the person worked out relative to the meal.

    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.

    I often eat things like pop tarts, frosted sugar cookies, or something of that nature for PWO carbs. Doesn't seem to make a difference if I eat that or honey and oats.

    If I worked out later in the day, a philly and fries would definitely be in order!

    I dread the day I can't eat what I want.
