refeeds

Post by Buckyx on Sat May 14, 2016 4:33 am

anyone has experience or doing refeeds currently? its first(second) time I started doing them properly and not sure if I am doing them right
I am doing 5 hour refeed window, once a week. high carbs low fat(50g for day max) and it puts me from 600+ deficit to around maintenance

first time I woke up 1kg heavier, now I woke up only 0.25-0.5kg heavier and everything stayed the same

difference between start of both refeeds was 0.5kg loss

I eat sometimes. When I'm hungry. That's all I know!

I cut hard last year. 85kg down to 76kg at the lowest before a holiday. 700 cal deficit, no cardio, for a few months. I refeeded every Friday or Saturday depending on what I was doing and it really helped mentally, and the next time It filled me out and made me look more "jacked" than I was because of the sudden carb boost. I ate about 2000 cal a day cutting and refed on 3200 ish.

I recommend it only if your strict the rest of the week.

On that note. I don't recommend dieting at all haha life's to short to count cals. Just eat healthy and learn your body and it's needs then train harder. Im currently "cutting" but I'm just training with more complexes and being a bit cautious with my food.

thanks for your input, I also have small free meal in the middle of the week like some sweet pastry or so. this week I am not hungry at all, no cravings also quite often forget to eat some fat with meals so deficit is probably bigger than planned

so other than that free "meal"(like 150-200kcal maybe) I am very strict during week. whole foods mostly and processed like prot. powders, dark chocolate and dairy. refeed is 70-80% whole foods starch with some fruit and something good :D

I have decided to cut cause 20% bodyfat is not aesthetic imo, Id like to get at least to 15-17% and maintain that for whole year. I cant eat more without getting more fat and also quite heavy for bodyweight training. that holds me back
