I am by no means shredded, ripped, or hyooge. My physique does not qualify me to make assertions on what works and what doesnt. I’ve done high carb low fat, even splits, low carb high fat, P+C mornings and P+F nights and vice versa.
Honestly, of all the methods I’ve tried (and there is no scientific evidence to support this other than the way I feel) I preffer eating mostly P+F during the day, and P+C at night. The only exceptions to this is some fruit near mid-morning midday and PWO.
I found it nearly impossible to eat moderate size higher carb meals upon waking; I feel as if I can’t wake up. High carb meals within 2 hours pre-workout have always led me to decreased performance and occasionally moderate GI distress.
After midday, however, I seem to deal with carbs much better (steady energy levels, no rushing roller coaster feeling). I also find it much easier to wind down and get to sleep soundly with carb meals later in the day.
According to everything I read this is entirely backwards, but I feel better; go figure. Another completely unexplainable phenomena is an intense craving for milk and bananas PWO, when any other time they make me feel a little sick.[/quote]
I am in the same exact boat as you. I also have a hard time consuming most of my carbs in the am; so I don’t. I also feel better doing it this way. Milk and bananas are always in my PWO as well.
