Refeed on 100 Carbs a Day


#1

Would it be a good idea to include a refeed/cheat meal day once every two weeks if I am consuming 100 carbs a day and on a 500 calorie deficit? Is 100 carbs/day low enough to justify one?

Thanks

If thats you in your avatar you are doing well already, congrats. Refeeds are a great idea on low carb diets (100g or lower a day would be considered low carb)… But you will have to try it and see if it works well for you. Try it for 4 weeks and see if you are continuing to get leaner. If so, continue on, if not, reevaluate your diet outline and try a new tactic… Try that for 4 weeks, keep going until you are where you want to be.

pfft, 30g and below is ‘low carb’. If you feel you need it, then do it

Thanks guys. This question is actually for my 56 year old Dad, who I put on a diet recently.
