The Truth About Eating Carbs After 6pm


We've all heard the no carbs at night recommendation.

Have you ever been told that eating carbs after 6pm will make you fat or cause you to weight gain? I used to think that, too!

🍞I’m here to debunk that myth for you! Now.. I often eat my biggest meal around 8pm and it usually contains 60 - 80g of carbs. And guess what, I’m still losing fat!

🥖As long as you’re in a calorie deficit, you can enjoy your carbs! Carbs don’t make you gain weight. Carbs also don’t magically flip a switch and change scientific properties at 6:01pm. If you prefer eating carbs at night, go for it. No food will inherently make you gain weight. Only eating too many calories for your needs can do that!

🥞 The next time you hesitate to eat carbs, whether it be in the morning, afternoon, or evening, I want you to remember something: the only way to lose fat is to be in a calorie deficit. Stop demonizing carbs and just consume them in an appropriate way with the other two macronutrients: protein and fats.
