When cutting or trying to stay lean I like to keep carbs fairly low during the day because I just feel more alert and energetic during the day doing that and it doesn't really bother me too much, and I like to have my cheat meals or eat with the family at night. I just have less discipline in the evening in general so I don't restrict myself at night unless I'm in a severe cutting phase.
I like fast acting insulin producing carbs or plazma before my workouts because it gives me the best workouts.
On days I don't work out or know I won't binge at night I spread carbs evenly throughout the day and evening but still don't go over 25-40 grms per meal at most. This pattern seems to work best for me.
Like yogi said I don't think it makes a huge difference how you do it unless you're at the point where you're fighting to get down to mid or lower level single digit body fat. At that point I believe every little tweak helps.
Just experiment and find which pattern works best for you to stay in your caloric range.
