View Full Version : carb cutoffs

As I understand it, carb cutoffs are when you only eat protein after a certain point in the evening, say 5pm. After this only small to moderate amounts of carbs and fats should be eaten. I guess the thinking is that carbs and fats are used for energy, and will be stored as fat when your sleeping. So cutoffs should lead to less fat gain while bulking or more fat loss while cutting. Any truth to this or is it BS? Thanks.

BS. Cals in vs cals out. Fat is good at night to slow down digestions, especially before bed with protein.

Muscle rebuilding during rest is a huge task, you don't think energy is necessary for that? I carb up before bed to spare my p.m. protein.

That's an old wives's tale brought to you by ****ty women's magazines, such as "stay at home mom monthly". Think of the time of day you eat the most crap....probably around 9 pm when you're tired, feeling snacky and watching a movie. The better way is to eat healthy.
