I experienced success using the Radical Diet to drop a fair amount of weight. I have now transitioned back to a more traditional version of the AD, still with the intent to lose more fat.
I am now making progress with just a single, very large carb-up meal just once a week.
I understand the benefits and the importance of the carb-up, but what I’m wondering is, would there be any gain – given my reduced calories – from a weekly “cheat” meal that was still low-carb?
I would receive some of the benefits of a refeed, but spend longer in fat-burning mode.
