The primary consideration for weight management is overall calorie intake for the day in relation to your physical activity. Since most of your activity takes place during the hours you are awake, it is best to consume more of your calories during that time since that is when you need the energy and nutrients. A light snack before bedtime, however, is not harmful. As far as keeping track of your water intake as well as your calorie intake, you would consider a 24 hour time span.
