    Currenty cutting right now for the summer time. I am only eating carbs for breakfast, and before my workout. Should you eat the carbs after the workout instead? I've heard conflicting opinions. Thanks for the responses in advance.

    I stick to eating carbs closer to the morning time and as the day progress cutting my carb intake and eating more protein. Usually my last meal is just proteins.

    Agree. Eating carbs - complex carbs, and not simple ones - after a daytime workout won't wreck your cut, I don't think. Of course your post workout meal should be rich in protein.

    And eating your carbs early in the day, tapering off throughout until you are at, say, no carbs after 8pm seems like a good method. I'll do my best to update my profile pics by mid April so we can all see whether it is working for me. lol.

    Simple carbs after working out can cause an insulin spike which can help with protein synthesis. Critical if trying to gain muscle mass. If your trying to cut, it may not be as critical but it wouldn't be a bad time to get some of the carbs your body needs anyhow. That's my theory anyway.
