Carbs at Night?
This morning while watching the news I caught a bit about a recent study that showed that eating your carbs in the evening can promote fat loss. While the idea of carb cycling isn’t a new one, it is the first time I have heard it on the news. It’s a strategy that has been employed by bodybuilders and other sports where fairly rapid weight loss is desired like wrestling, mma and boxing. Amy and I have played around with it, but nothing serious enough to make a solid statement on it. If you do a search on it you can find it under terms such as carb cycling and carb back-loading. (it should be noted that I think carb back-loading can be done in a more sensible manner than is described on this website. It doesn’t have to be done with straight junk food)
This current study looked at 78 Israeli police officers that were split into 2 groups, with all participants eating the same number of calories. One group ate their carbs throughout the day and the other group ate the majority of their carbs in the evening.
The results: Nighttime carb eaters lost 27 percent more body fat than people on the standard diet. Surprisingly, they also felt 13.7 percent fuller at the end of the study than the beginning, while regular dieters were hungrier. What’s more, the level of inflammatory hormones — which can lead to heart disease and cancer — in the nighttime group’s blood decreased by 27.8 percent compared to only 5.8 percent in the standard dieters.
I’m not necessarily saying that this is the way that all of you should go, but if you have tried other methods, straight Paleo, Zone, Zone/Paleo and still have some weight loss/fat loss goals then you may want to play around with this a bit. If you do, be sure to tell us your results.
