cut off time for carbs
Just wondering if at any of you bros cut your carb intake completely after a certain time. i usualy cut carbs after 6 pm unless i workout late. but normally i cut them after 6. my theory is that it might help not to gain as much fat than if i would eat carbs with every meal. just wondering what you all think....

There is no set time everday on when you should quit eating one certain type of food or another, it all depends on your activity and schedule, not the clock.

also your metabolism. I struggle to gain so I am serving up a nice bowl of linguine with light alfredo, fresh cheese, chopped walnuts and a can of tuna mixed in at about 9pm 4 times a week. If you gain easily then lunch would be a good cutoff, evening just protien and veggies.

yep, pwo and p-pwo are two of the most important meals of the day...regardless of what time it it.
Now on non-training days I wouldn't eat carbs past 6pm. But then again it depends on a person's goals, metabolism, and off course the "supps."

thanks for the responses. i plan my crb cut off acording to my activity for the day. i usauly lift in the morning and dont do much at 5pm til bed except study. thats why i cut them, plus im an easy gainer so i need to watch out for the fat.

the cut off time is not near as important as carb "type" (low GI, unless post workout)
