Odd, Joel’s post came up after I saw my post appear on this thread. Anyway…
I suppose my cut cycle can be considered “severe.” My calories on an average cut day fluctuate between 1900-2100.
I’ve integrated refeeds into my cut cycle since early January. How well they’ve accelerated my body fat loss is hard to say. To be honest I only started tracking my body fat percentages consistently once I started refeeding. (I admit I’m lazy, but doing the 7 site method is a pain in the ass.)
I used to do once a week refeeds, but now I do them twice a week, Sunday and Wednesday. Sunday’s refeeds are much larger, you know, the 5000 calorie range but they’re less intense on Wednesday with calories around 4000.
In any case, my body fat does seem to be decreasing, I was just concerned that my refeeds might be too excessive.
