This is true? I have heard the exact opposite numerous times aswell. Idk, carbs at all hours has never done me any damage, I eat them every night after I work out.
No it's not true. For example, I often train at 6 PM, should I not eat carbs afterwards just because the clock says so? no

The clock does not determine the state of your body.

My training is in the evening aswell.
And I was always told that its good to eat some carbs after a workout.

I do agree that the clock does not determine the state of your body.

Should I not eat carbs late at night? Eating carbohydrates at night can, under certain circumstances, cause you to store the calories as fat. Another reason to avoid or lower your carbohydrate intake late at night, when trying to get cut, is to harness the body's output of growth hormone (GH), which is released at night within the first 90 minutes of deep sleep. GH is beneficial if you wish to shed fat and hold muscle, because it initiates a moderate shifting of fuel sources so the body burns more fatty acids at rest at the expense of burning less glycogen and body protein. Taking advantage of your body's GH output results in additional fat loss without a loss in muscle. Carbs consumed before you head off to bed can blunt the body's natural release of growth hormone, since GH is released more readily when blood-sugar levels are low. That's why some bodybuilders try to avoid carbohydrates later in the day.

Generally speaking, yes. I'm not a nutrition guru though I just know a decent amount from research.

wukkadb,
forget everything you've read for a sec:
so what you're saying is: if YOU would get a job where you would work during the night and sleep during the day, your diet would be devoid of carbs? just apply little logic, it's not rocket science

@ that link: he says, "under certain circumstances"... yes?
and the rest is aimed at people who work out soon after they wake up.

what you eat and when depends on your goals and routine. there are no fixed guidelines.
