So the studies show better body composition for night eating and carbs especially. Using CBL or Carb Nite, how much time between your last bite and shut eye qualifies as night eating?
That is, what's the min and max window here?

I generally feel better when I don't have that "stuffed" feeling just before going to bed. I had a large chilli/butternut squash meal last night, which I finished at 1930 and went to bed around 2230, feeling nice and rested.
Other time I've not finished until 2100, but generally end up going to bed a little later. I would experiment with different times and see what works best for you!

Im using the Carbs Addict Diet approach (Drs. Heller), with a Paleo slant. Basically skipping breakfast (black coffee only), protein only at lunch (lettuce wraps, cheeseburger without the bun), and then sensible protein/carb/veg dinner (1/3, 1/3, 1/3) which has to be eaten within one hour to control insulin. I don't think it really matters what time at night or how soon before bed. I've been doing it for almost two weeks after having stalled on regular Paleo after six months (and lost another couple of pounds, but feeling better body comp already). Read all the Amazon reviews; I don't think you necessarily have to buy the book, but it looks pretty cheap used.

Because of when I get home from work and then work out, its usually less than 2 hours. I sleep really well.
