I am not a big fan of cutting carbs out all together but I do know that for me, limiting my carbs (especially the starching ones like potatoes, breads and pastas) work best for me.

Some people say if you are going to eat a starchy carb, it's best to do it at lunch time so you can burn it off throughout the day. But then I read a couple articles that stated it was better to have them at night.

For my carb loving friends, do you only eat carbs at certain times of the day?

I am pretty much always eating carbs. :) I try not to eat anything too late though.

I love my carbs too, but since I started here (2 weeks now) I have only been eating carbs with breakfast and lunch. I have heard that your last carb should be at lunch as it gives you time to work it off. About once a week we have a carb at dinner (usually like a tortilla when we make pizza, or a pita when it's greek night) but that's all. Seems to be working so far, and I haven't really missed the rice/pasta/potato/ at dinner! :)

Yes

Why can't you work off carbs at night? Your body doesn't shut down you know.

All day, err'day.

I don't think it matters.

nope. i only eat "afternoon carbs". i'm so glad the fda has made companies distinguish what carbs are best to eat during different parts of the day as part of the package nutrition details. except daylight savings time always messes me up.

It's better to just fast from 11 to 1 during daylight savings time, just to be sure. But be careful that you don't go into starvation mode.

I eat them when I feel like eating them. Wasn't aware it mattered.

I eat carbs whenever I want to eat carbs.

I eat most of my carbs at night, because I enjoy eating most of my food at night.

I've cut down on my carb intake and it's made a big difference. Here in Germany, there's a new bread in the stores that only 10 per cent carbs and that's what I eat at lunchtime. I don't eat much pasta, rice or potatoes any more and my spare tire has really gone down since January. I'm just not active enough to burn off the excess.

I abstain from all carb intake. I have so much stored up, I think Im good for at least 6 months with nothing but water. I mean...just look at my head...it's a solar panel for energy.

do they have carbs for timezones too? I should check that, see if they're CST compatible as well \m/

I've been limiting potatoes and refined cabs for years. I try to stick to whole grains, veggies and fruit for my carbs and I eat them whenever I want. I usually don't eat anything in the morning, though.

I tried to only eat carbs between 11p and 2a, but it turns out I don't have NES.
May 21, 2012 11:04 AM
mmmm..... Beer.
May 21, 2012 11:05 AM
All day, errday.
May 21, 2012 11:08 AM
Yes, yes I do.

I try to spread my carbs out over the day. If I try to go super low at any one meal, I crash HARD. I almost passed out at the gym one day because I had only had like 10 carbs and then ran 3 miles. So now I eat a 20 carb breakfast (11net) and there have been no repeats of the lightheaded episode. I also easily go 4-5 hours until lunch. Food almost doesn't interest me anymore....
