Think about this some, its common sense pointing to basic thermodynamics, and basics in personal calorie/macro needs, when considering the average healthy.

If person A needs 2200 calories to hypothetically maintain body weight, but eats only 1500 calories, and......1200 of those calories (macros don't matter) are before bed. Is this person going to get fat, when the end result is 700 calorie deficit?

I think not. Eating before bed, doesn't magically make one fat.

Timing.....under these circumstances, presented, doesn't matter, period...in the sense of losing...tissue weight.

Eating before bed (for most healthy persons, with basic goals, and keeping things EQUAL), is not a problem. I lost over 40 pounds (with my first goal want), and sometimes I ate fat and carbohydrates before bed.
