Does anyone know much about the post-diet rebound effect commonly used by builders? my understanding is that right after dieting your body is starving for calories, so for a week after you go crazy and eat a shit load, then ease up. Ive also heard that some people will diet for 4 weeks, then for a week go crazy while still eatting clean.
by this i mean reintroducing a gallon of milk a day and that kind of thing. the you diet back down for another 4 weeks. the theory being that you will put on a good amount of muscle in this one week, and then lean out for the following 4. anyone ever tried this or heard anything about it? Thanks in advance.
