Workout late = Eating carbs late
I Lift at around 7pm so I do not have my shake with dex until 8:15pm...
Then I have my PPWO meal chicken or lean steak With 1 cup of brown rice at around 9:30. Then I go to Bed about 11:30 (I have two scoops of Micellar Casein & Calcium Caseinate). Also I usually have oats 45 mins after my morning cardio.
I am trying to cut. Is having these carbs messing that up? Am I having them to late?
PS. I have lost around 6 pounds in 4 weeks though.

I do the same thing on days I lift at like 2am. I just have my PWO at 3 and my PPWO carb/pro meal at 4 then a flax/whey shake at 6 before bed. Other days I workout around 2pm and I do the same thing and I really haven't noticed a difference.

You need those carbs before and after training, no matter the time, prevents muscle catabolism. Cut them down other times in the day, in your case during the day. Let me recommend that you take in about 30g of whey protein about 15-20min before morning cardio to prevent muscle breakdown and loss as well. Then have your oatmeal and protein source about 30-45 min after cardio session.

I usually only have carbs after I lift. Should I be having carbs before as well even if I am cutting? If so what kindof carbs? Brownrice? Yams?
I do cardio on an empty stomach.

i like to take in quality complex carbs Old Fashion oats is what i choose and blend them to a fine dust in blender then mix them w/ whey protein and it should lower the density of the oats thus reducing their GI lvl helping them to readily absorb along w/ the whey protein. i drink about 1hr before lifting
