Carbs after lunch

I asked my doctor about eating carbs or cutting them out of my diet. He said it was fine to eat carbs but to only eat them for breakfast or lunch. Does anyone do this?

I usually try to eat most of my carbs just before and after exercising. Although I have been so lazy with the exercise lately and I've just been eating them whenever!

Ha @ last part Bev!

I eat my main meal in the evening so my carbs are always in that meal!

I don't restrict any of the macronutrients by meal time, but it's not a bad idea. I don't know about others here but I actually crave carbs the most intensely at night, so cutting them out of dinner would probably do me some good.

My main meal is lunch, so I tend to eat most of my carbs at that time. I normally only have soup for dinner and I don't eat bread with it.

We usually eat carbs during the day and try tend to eat more protein for dinner in our case (MEAT + salad and veggies )

but yes I heard it is better to eat your carbs during the day

I loveeeee pasta and it was apart of many meals! Overload was the problem ... Now I try to cook whole wheat pasta when we have it but admit not always.

I had a friend on SW with me who ate pasta all week and wondered why she never lost weight as SW have it marked as 'free' on extra easy which is wrong and they should state with all free foods it is part moderation IMO. Oh I'm going on now
