When to Eat Carb to Optimize Muscle Building and Fat Loss

There are actually two best times.

But really, there is only one.

Let me explain.

You see, the best time to eat carbs is when your body is best
primed to deal with them (that's the "one" rule), and this happens
to occur twice a day:

1.  In the morning

2.  After intense exercise

For one, loads of research has shown that glucose tolerance is
highest in the morning, making it a no brainer to consume a large
portion of your daily carb intake at breakfast when your body is
best equipped to process them.

If you're someone who consumes frequent meals, mid-morning
is a another great option.

Basically, the rule is this:  eat your carbs in the morning, not the
afternoon or evening.  Unless...'re performing intense exercise.

Perhaps (well not perhaps, it's true) an even better time to eat
your carbies is after exercise.  During the 1-2 hour window post
workout your body is ultra primed to suck up carbs for recovery,
energy replenishment, and other anabolic processes (and NOT
fat storage).

Here are some sample daily "carb-friendly" schedules for both
exercise and non-exercise diets.

Exercise Day:
Breakfast:  protein/carbs

Mid-morning:  protein/fat
Lunch:  protein/fat
Mid-afternoon:  protein/fat
Evening (after exercise): protein/carbs
Pre-bed: protein/fat

Non-exercise Day: 
Breakfast:  protein/carbs

Mid-morning:  protein/carbs
Lunch:  protein/fat
Mid-afternoon:  protein/fat
Evening: protein/fat
Pre-bed: protein/fat
