Fat Intake on "mini" refeed days!

Answered on August 19, 2014

Alright, I have been cutting roughly 11 weeks now and from where I started at ~205 and am currently right around 190. The fat loss has been excellent so far and just began "mini" refeed days about 2 weeks ago. I workout in the morning right after my first meal so this refeed consists only of adding a 5.3oz baked pot to my eggs and a 1/4 cup of oats to my pwo (about a 40g overall increase). The rest of the day my carbs remain the exact same as any other day. My question is should I really be lowering my fat intake on such a small refeed day on a normal day I eat arond 160g of carbs 90 fat and 300 protein and my cals are at 2800. On these refeeds my carbs go to about 200 and I USUAULLY lower fat like 10g's but is that even necessary?! Thanks!

Interesting - I've had a few days where I've definitely been LC and have been waking up too early. Maybe I've seen this kind of correlation elsewhere, but it's never clicked for me before. Thanks for the comment!

What are you trying to accomplish? I don't really see this as a refeed of any sort. On a refeed you should go big or go home. At least double+ your carbs and yes drop the fat to ~50g for the day. I just don't see the benefit to what you are proposing given your current daily intake. I actually don't think you need a refeed with your usual macros but if you are feeling you do then go for it but do it up big.

If your still sleeping I woudnt say you need it, my body lets me know when Im too LC by interrupting my sleep multiple times per night and having me wake up 2-4 hours before Im supposed to. Thats how I know its re-feed time.
