How Much Fat Before Bed is Acceptable?


i have a general inquiry:

my last meal is 2 hours before bed. it consists of 150g turkey breast + some veggies + hazelnuts

i wonder if i can eat 40g of hazelnuts (24g fat)? wouldnt it be too much before bed?

my diet macros looks like that: 200g protein, 420g carbs, 95g fat, divided into 5 meals (3-4h apart)

sorry for my english, im from poland

((As for pre-bed fat intake, I stand by my rule of "have fat when you don't have carbs." However, I do recommend cutting your normal portion of fat in half.

I'd recommend being even more conservative. For the last meal of the day, limit yourself to 10 or 15 grams of fat.))
