Well I experimented with my first carb refeed today. Not sure how well I did, but here’s how it went:
Breakfast: 4 slices 7 grain toast / 4 egg whites / 1 serving protein
Snack: 1 serving protein and 1/2 cup cottage cheese / 1 can tuna
Lunch: 2 grilled chicken sandwiches on pumpernickel
Snack: 1 cup cottage cheese, 1 can tuna
Dinner: 2 servings whole wheat pasta / 6 oz chicken breast
Total calories were 2425 with fat totalling 44 grams, carbs 226 grams, and protein at 253 grams. Standing 6’1 at 198 and somewhere between 8 and 17% BF (if I can figure out how to use this Accu-measure I just got in). I think my total caloric intake was a bit low and my carb timings were incorrect - but after the past week I was CRAVING carbs. I at least tried to make sure breakfast was over 60 grams of carbs as Terry suggested, but then realized I was still pretty low for the day so I jacked it back up again at dinner. My protein was also too low for my liking, as I need around 300 grams to equal 1.5 g per lb of BW.
Just wanted to toss this up for comments and see how everyone else treats their carb refeeds. I think I’ll need to plan a little better for Sunday’s refeed.
