Eliminate carbs at night?

Hello tribe, I'm struggling a little with my weight loss, i'm wondering if it would be a good idea to cut on the carbs at night. I usually eat plantains or sweet potatoes at dinner time.

Love to all

Not healthy and bad all the way around. Do protein & veggie meals before bed; more on the veggie side as it will hold you over till breakfast and for those who wake up hungry, its because of carb overload and a thing called candida. Try to move that sweet potato to lunch.

Breakfast is your chance to eat carbs such as fruits, healthy cereal with lots fiber. Always look for low simple sugar carbs. You want complex to fuel your body till lunch or workouts.

I do IF twice a week, 16-20 hour fasts. Polynesian_metal, for a guy, the shortest time without food, to be consider a fast, is 16 hours.

No, not moving them, just eat my usual carbs during the day, and eliminating the ones at night.

Am I doing IF if I eat late work out when I wake up with a cup of coffee and skip breakfast? I know its probably rude to ask a question withing a question here, but I ate sweet potatoes last night and was surprised that I actually gained from just that.

Do you mean move your carb intake to earlier in the day and keep the same amount of carbs, or cut out the carbs you would normally eat at night and not replace them earlier in the day? Just to clarify based on a comment below.

But if that's what he is doing right now, and the weight loss isn't happening, experimenting with that certainly couldn't hurt. It may not help, but it would be pretty painless to try. IF is a good suggestion to try, though too :)

I'd do the opposite. I find that a bit of starch with supper helps me sleep and avoiding it during the day keeps appetite low.

I also really like IF...missing breakfast cuts my appetite a lot.

I actually think it's more important to time them around workouts or cycle them from day to day. Unless it changes how you sleep, when they are consumed during the day is pretty inconsequential. Of course, if stopping the consumption at night is the best way for you to just cut them out or scale back and see how you respond, go for it.

I would definitely give it a try. Either skip them altogether for a while, or eat them earlier in the day, particularly after a workout session.

Nate Miyaki and John Keifer suggest low carb days and high carb nights. YMMV.

Candida is the reason America is so sick and the main culprit that leads to most all future illness.

The American Parasite they call it. Dont buy probiotics, 99.9% are fake/scams. If they cant get past your stomach acid, they fail. You want 25-100 Billion per serving with around 14 strains, acidophilus being the main strains you are after. American yogurt is loaded with sugar and such a small amount of probiotics/good bacteria you are actually feeding the candida yeast/fungus.
