Eating too close to bedtime causes muscle soreness?

HGH preforms better on an empty stomach...Instead of repairing muscles while you sleep your body focuses on digestion?

I'm trying to figure out why I'm incredibly sore and my muscles aren't recovering.

i haven't had the problem in a while...but I'm pretty sure water wasn't a problem. If anything i drink too much water.

I definitely recommend eating protein soon after a workout to minimize soreness

Is your soreness 24-48 hours after your workout?

I eat sweet potatoes prob 2-3 times per week, usually after a HIIT workout, and I eat a lot of spinach, broccoli, kale and carrots. Are you eating soon after working out? have you considered a protein shake post workout?

Is it fair to blame the sweet potato?...our could It just be a build up of oxalic acid from all the veggies i eat? (spinach, broccoli, beets, tomatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes...etc.)

my last workout consisted of kettle bell, squats, hang cleans, and sprints...but I'm usually in very good shape and never get sore. I eat lots of eggs (probably an average of 8-12 daily) moderate chicken, moderate, bacon, and moderate fish. Olive Oil, coconut milk, berries... I eat lots of green veggies but I try to limit them because last time I had these symptoms I blamed the oxalic acid in spinach and stopped eating spinach for a few days and the symptoms completely dissipated...

What exercises and activities are you participating in? What are you eating, besides sweet potatoes?

i've also been eating a huge amount of sweet potatoes...I can't find anything online against sweet potatoes other than oxalic acid but I'm going to cut them for a couple of days as well as trying to eat earlier.

Have you tried magnesium supplementation half an hour before bed?

Also you could be inflammatory foods that affect some people more than others, and sometimes after going paleo our bodies become much more sensitive to any food that they don't agree with.

Also, Delayed onset muscle soreness is not always a sign that your muscles aren't recovering. Often it turns out they have recovered, and just exercising them gets rid of soreness.

Might seem too obvious, but are you drinking enough water? I know that if I really load up on water right after and then throughout the day of a tough workout I can almost completely prevent soreness. It's one of the only things that really make a difference for me.
