Daily Dose of Coach #87

Someone has done a great job at scaring the vast majority of the population to not eat carbs, or anything for that matter, at night or it will magically turn into fat.  I hear this all the time from my clients.  They say, "Should I not eat at night?"  or "At what time should I stop eating carbs?"

The answer is unless you are a physique competitor, body builder, or weight class athlete, it doesn't really make that much of a difference.  Not at the level it's giving you anxiety about eating some fruit and yogurt an hour before you go to bed. 

Yes, I've told my clients before, a sleeve of Oreo's probably isn't the best after dinner snack if you're looking to lose weight, but this goes to my next point. The most important thing about improving body composition is making consistent and high quality choices of food all day long.  If you're making good choices, you can time them whenever you want and the improvements will come.
