Myth or reality.Carbs at night will make you fat.

Myth or reality.Carbs at night will make you fat.

 

This sounds real at first sight. Most of us are less active in the evening,if you’re not a sleepwalker, then probably not have a lot of physical activity while you sleep. Therefore carbs intake after 6.00 in the afternoon is likely to be stored in your body as fat because your metabolism slows and insulin sensitivity is reduced.

In reality however your basic metabolic rate at rest is not very different during the day than when sleep.The exercise during the day can significantly increase the metabolic rate in your sleep leading to greater oxidation of the fat, while dreaming!

 

There is actually a 2011 study examining the effects of carbs timing , it found Well that participants who ate 80 percent of total intake of carbohydrates at night lost significantly more weight and body fat than the group eating carbohydrates throughout the day.Additionally,the group receiving the carbohydrates in the evening said that he felt less hunger.

I am not recommend taking all your carbs at night, but if you are hungry and get a few more calories than carbs above do not be afraid that it will be stored in fat in your body. Coupled with a little protein will not only go to bed happier stomach, but will help and your muscles to grow and recovery!
