I usually work out earlier in the day, but occasionally I have to workout later, around 6:30. I finish my workout at 7:30 and have my PWO shake, then have a big meal at around 8:30.

However, I don't go to bed until like 11:30, and if I haven't eaten since 8:30 I'm going to be pretty hungry. Is it alright to have a decent sized meal (bowl of oats and chicken breast or something) at 10pm? On the one hand I don't want to down a bunch of carbs so late at night, but on the other hand I'm gonna be hungry and since it's the second meal after my workout will carbs be beneficial?

I always have a meal right before I go to bed, usually a can of tuna or peice of chicken. Its actually a very important meal.

Yeah I always eat before bed, but usually just a small protein/fat snack (like 200-250 cals).

I was wondering about having a substantial meal with complex carbs before bed......

Carbs are fine before bed.

Carbs are fine at any time.

no regrets

I usually have some cottage cheese before bed or a protein shake with some natural peanut butter to slow down the absorption of the whey.
