Hey ya’ll, new to the forum.
So at the moment I’m dieting to lose weight.
I’m 29yrs - 5,10" - 156.5lbs (down from 162 about 2 weeks ago) and been training for about a year. Basically, I’m shaving off the last 5-6lbs or so, so I can (finally) see my abs.
I’m using a high-fat/low-carb, calorie reduced diet. Roughly:
2,000 calories a day
50% fat - 120 grams
40% protein - 190 grams
10% carbs - 45 grams
So my question is about re-feeds. How should I structure these?
I noticed the first week of dieting the weight flew off(4lbs). The second week I plateaued, then saturday I had a cheat meal(burger, fries, brownie, ice-cream), my weight went up Sunday(probably due to water retention) then on Monday I’d lost the water weight and dropped an additional 2lbs.
So is that all there is to refeeds? Just pig out one meal a week? Or are there specific carbs/calories/macronutrients I should consume?
