Congrats on making the decision to take control and improve your health and physique!
What exactly are you asking? There’s a lot of info in both articles. Ultimately, if you read enough, you will find a LOT of conflicting advice, but that doesn’t mean one is “right” and one is “wrong.” The first and most important thing to realize is everyone’s body works differently. Some people are more insulin sensitive than others. Some people can handle lots of carbs, some can’t. Some people can eat any form of carb before bed, some should be lower GI and some should avoid carbs before bed.
Ultimately, what matters FAR MORE than when you eat your carbs/macros is getting in the desired macros and cals by the end of the day, regardless of when you eat them. Worrying about timing and such minute details shouldn’t be priority right now for you.
IN GENERAL, the safest way to play it with carb timing is to have carbs with breakfast, before and after your workout. Any carbs left after that can be disbursed as you like. There is most definitely nothing wrong with carbs before bed. I’m a smaller guy compared to most on these forums, 5’4" and 161lbs, but I eat a 600 cal shake before bed which includes 40g carbs from fruit and granola, and am not gaining excess fat.
Again, far more important is making sure you’re training hard and heavy, consistently, and sticking to your nutrition plan every day. Use the articles you’ve found to make a good nutrition plan, take data on your results and modify as needed. But, be sure to stick with the current plan for 3-4 weeks before evaluation and adjustments. As a beginner you’ll make progress on pretty much anything you do. Don’t get caught in “analysis paralysis”, just make a plan and get going.
For a good nutrition article, try this: https://www.t-nation.com/diet-fat-loss/how-bodybuilders-should-eat. It’s very informative and provides a good template for making gains and staying lean. Again, you will find conflicting information out there, because it’s all worked for someone. The only way to know what is best for you is train and eat well all the time, see what happens and go from there.
