CARB MYTH #2: EATING CARBS AT NIGHT MAKES YOU FAT
Many dieters restrict their carb intake at night, limiting them-selves to protein powder, poultry, fish and vegetables sometime after 5 p.m. The belief is that carbs eaten at night will unequivocally be stored as bodyfat, which is generally true, as insulin sensitivity decreases at night. But here's the problem: If you train after work at 7 p.m. and finish by 9, you must eat carbohydrates in your post-training meal to kick-start the muscle-building process. If you avoid carbohydrates you'll fail to support the growth process and, worse, it could increase your cortisol, a hormone that can lower testosterone levels and chew away muscle mass, causing a drop in your metabolic rate. That's the biggest concern, because when the metabolic rate declines, the body becomes really good at storing bodyfat.
MYTH BUSTER: Consume 50 grams of carbohydrates (in addition to protein) to kick-start the rebuilding process in the meal following your workout. If you don't gain bodyfat from eating that much, boost it to 70-80 grams.

In some of the other threads the sources are cited, but I can assure you he wasn't trying to represent this information as a brand-new discovery made by he alone.

I've lost 10lb in the last 2 weeks, I have a fight coming up in a week and a half, gotta lose 6 more lbs. The only carbs I get are a small bowl of oatmeal in the morning after my run. I am eating like nothing but protein and vegetables, couple of fruits a day, and not eating after 7pm. I would LOVE to eat some carbs like a normal person, but my coach and another old time fighter who I talk to told me to absolutely not eat any.
