Carbs at night or postworkout with IF?

I recently started IF and love it. I feel like i have tons of energy during the day. I train at 11:00 and eat my first meal at about two. I still have a small whey shake post workout however. Wondering who likes to carb refeed postworkout or wait until night? I love how carbs at night help me sleep but i also feel like when i eat 150 g of carbs postworkout I would build the most muscle. Thx

I fast 8pm-12pm, train at 11am, and eat two equal (big) meals, one immediately post workout and one at 8pm, both high carb and lowfat lean meat; leangains.

Rest days same thing just no carbs higher fat.

PWO carbs feel awesome. Evening carbs help sleep. Why pick one or the other?

My suggestion is to have the PWO carbs and a small amount of carbs(such as a small piece of fruit) at night.

Try to determine the minimum amount of carbs that you need to help you sleep.
