When to not take carbs
So I never take carbs after 7 I don't know why but I just don't, however I have a part time job now so instead of training from 2 or 4 I'm starting at 7 on the night now this changes up a few things but iv also changed my diet aswel I'm now eating 5 meals a day instead of four so heres what I'm needing help in guys il give my diet plan and let me know if its fine?
8am 5 eggs ( 2 yolks ) 1 apple multivitamin and green tea ( pill form )
11:30am 110g of cooked salmon fish with 50g of cooked brown rice and 100g of cooked vegs
3pm 110g of cooked diced beef steak with 50g of cooked brown rice and 100g of Cooked veg
5:30pm 110g of cooked chicken fillets and 50g of cooked brown rice and 100g of cooked veg
7pm gym till around 820 to 830pm 30g of whey protein shake
9pm 50g of almonds and 100g of can tuna
Now this is the best diet if ever had! May not be great to some but it's by far the best I can afford and come up with so please help me? I'm doing fasted 20 min cardio in the morning and the reason I'm saying cooked is because all these meats are weighing at around 200g uncooked so when I cook it loses weight so it Cerys but always above 100g cooked
What you guys think?

Brown rice is horrible for you. I have no idea why it is perceived to be the 'healthier' option when it contains so many phytates. White rice (esp. long grain) has the same GI load as brown but without the phytates.

My views are from a longetivity standpoint and from there I manipulate my macros to suit my needs. Just my .2 cents

From my point of view, carbs are too high whilst fats are to low. Carb intake goes up as exercise intensity goes up (enough to supply activity) but beyond that the body has little need for carbs. Think of it this way; what fuel are you burning for the majority of the day? What fuel does carb intake decrease?
The answer for both is fat. During periods of low intensity exercise, the body uses fats as a primary source of fuel. The body loves to burn fat and is very effecient at it. But when carb intake is high, the body's ability to burn fat via lipolysis is decreased as the body "prefers" this source of energy.
Fats (monos and saturated) have a load of good evidence surrounding them (brain disease prevention, testosterone production, hormone transport) whereas carbs do very little in the body. They provide a little direct fuel for the brain, of which though can be supplied via gluconeogeneisis (carbs not needed directly via the diet).
There is also emerging evidence that carbs are one of the main causes of heart disease and that in populations where carb intake is high, atherosclerosis increases.

Its all guesswork at this stage because I cbf'd working out what the total calorie intake is for the day
Creatine is fine to add in for both a 'bulk' and 'cut', it won't hinder any progress but may make you retain a little water which will translate into an increase in scale weight.
