i heard from couple of people that you should consume mostly all of your carbs befoer 2pm and then have protein adnd vegetables after. Is thiis accurate?

No. Nothing magical happens at 2pm that changes the way you handle carbs.

There is an advantage to consuming a larger portion of carbs when insulin sensetivity is highest (during/post-workout), but beyond that, so long as you're getting adequete protein/EFAs, it's total calories that matter.

well it all really depends on when you need the carbs most, as in when you workout. i workout in the mornings, so i eat the most at that time. after about 4 or 5, if i'm not at work, i'm just sitting on my ass or not doing much, so i have no need for a lot of carbs for energy. for that reason, i eat most of my carbs early in the day. if you workout at night then you would need more carbs PWO at night. I work as a server in a restaurant so i'm always running around. but if i don't work then i'm lazy as hell and just posting on these forums at night. eat the carbs when you need them most.
