Carbs, GH & Sleep

How long before bed should I eliminate carbs from my meals to maximize the Growth Hormone response of sleep?

2 hours?
4 hours?

What do you think?

It’s not worth worrying about. You’re better off eating carbs when you need them.

However, some poeple prefer to focus on protein/fat meals in the evening to get their fats without worrying about a rise in insulin from carbs, which would cause the fats to be stored as body fat.
