I agree with most of what the other two posters noted.
For me though, I have to add something about "when"! I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic/insulin resistance. Working with a nutritionist, one of my issues which she helped resolve was spreading my carb consumption throughout the day. Some of our bodies just can't efficiently handle a whole lot of carbs at once.... My goal was limited to 30-45 carbs at a meal, and 15 for snacks. And, she didn't want me to go for more than 3 hours without eating. She helped me move from 168lbs down to 140 lbs.. After five years, I've gained some again, hence Spark for some current info, motivation again. After all, besides still being insulin resistant, I'm five years older!! (And pleased to say, back down to 144lbs!)
So yes, "when" can matter for some of us!! I'd encourage you to check with your doctor or nutritionist!! Best of luck!!
I'd love to see some input from the Spark Coaches on this topic....
