It does not matter what time of day you eat. Ultimately, reaching your goal depends on your calorie balance in the day or the week, not the time you eat your Meals.
Many myths like “no carbs after 6pm” are therefore often wrong. You can actually safely eat a full meal, even with carbohydrates, after 6pm. However this is only possible if your calorie balance and macronutrient distribution (protein, fat, carbohydrates) allows for it.
For example, if you work night shifts, or are generally more active at night, it makes sense to eat at night. However, if you have a normal daily 9-5 rhythm you should probably avoid eating late in the evening as much as possible. A full stomach and digestive activity have a negative impact on sleep quality, which in turn affects many other areas. As a general rule, it is best if you eat your last meal about two to three hours before going to bed.
