^sounds good, though wouldn’t/couldn;t that limit my days in ketosis since it wouldn’t start immediately after the refeed?[/quote]
Yes you are correct but, either way you will be out of Ketosis for a day or so, I guess its a matter of how hard you really want to be able to train while in this deficit.
If your training is suffering and your lifts are dropping I would suggest two refeeds, it can’t hurt and if it doesn’t workout for you, you can always drop it and try what you originally proposed. I just know from my experience that my workouts were significantly better after refeeds.
I think MUthrows94 meant “minimal differences between 25-50g as opposed to 0-25g, other than remaining in ketosis.”
I believe that to be true, as well. AFAIK everything points to there being little to no difference between being in ketosis or not as long as carbs are very low (under 50g).
I have been on a minute amount of carbs for a month - at most, 2 small servings of fruit (not for the first 2 weeks), green vegetables, and residual carbs in other foods - and my “refeed” was just one weekly cheat meal. I am doing well. I seriously don’t think you need those huge refeeds. Seems you’re just indulging yourself on the weekend, instead of thinking objectively. [/quote]
Yea i agree with this I do not think refeeds are that necessary at all at least from my experience. When i originally did Keto I did 0 for a long time (other than a maintenance week to take a break from the dieting).
However, when I did finally stall which it took a long time, I added once a week refeeds and I could squeeze out a couple pounds so it can be effective towards the end of a diet IMO…
