A March 2017 study suggests that, “Men with impaired glucose metabolism should avoid high-carbohydrate foods in the evening” according to one source.

The German Institute of Human Nutrition suggests that for “men with prediabetes, abundant consumption of foods containing starch and sugar in the evening had a negative effect on their blood glucose regulation.” By comparison, “…in healthy study participants the timing of carbohydrate intake did not play a significant role in blood glucose regulation.”
