I would go with yes...but that's really just speculation. Glycogen takes quite a bit of carbs to replete, so if you're working out that often bumping your carbs every few days may be wise. Should maybe take a look at Athlete.io, it's a bit... (more)

Title says it all - I have a history of gut issues (leaky gut, suspecting SIBO, bloating, etc) and found that a keto diet kept the bloating away and BM's regular. I'm currently doing Lyle Mcdonald's PSMF (Protein Sparing Modified Fast) where... (more)

Hey Guys! So I follow a 5-6 day low carb paleo diet pretty high in fat, high in protein, and stick pretty much with green leafy veggies. 1 day a week I do carb refeed. VERY high in carbs. I eat a lot of white rice, sweet potatoes, fruit,... (more)

How often are re-feeds necessary to replace glycogen and up thyroid? I would assume the leaner the person/more lbm the more refeeds are needed. So if I am 10% bodyfat at 200lbs then maybe 2 a week as per anabolic diet advice, where as for a... (more)

That will depend on your activity level and what you mean by low carb. Some would consider under 200g per day LC while others might say under 100g. As to the "clean sources" comment, it would make sense that for optimum health make as much of... (more)

Nights are best. Personally I prefer that night after hard training.

here are my thoughts on this. 900 calories is low, but as long as you aren't using your carb refeeds as an opportunity to feed into binge-like behavior, it is certainly an effective strategy for carving up your body. I especially like the... (more)

If you're doing anything glycolitic (insanity counts), you're going to need carbs, especially post-workout. Here's a better article on it than I could write myself: http://talktomejohnnie.com/diet/earn-your-carbs (more)

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... (more)

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... (more)

Let's say an obese individual loses a bunch of weight. From what I know regarding Leptin, (which isn't much, I'm workin on it...) said individual should have lower levels of Leptin as a result of the weight loss. At what point, if at all, does... (more)

Carb or calorie refeeds can only "reset" leptin levels while you are doing it. Leptin levels respond as soon as you go back on the diet. See this thread where Tyler answers. (more)

I've fully embraced the advice from Robb Wolf and others to take in some paleoish carbs post workout. I've been adding sweet potatoes after what I consider a workout, but what would you consider an activity threshold that would require topping... (more)

I don't think post workout carbs are a necessity, especially given that your main goal is to lean out. If your goal was to build lean muscle, and you were already sufficiently lean, then post-workout carbs could be a good strategy to help achieve... (more)

Ok, so I've been working on the last part of my slimming down. Things that have worked for me recently have been adding more fat - ala Kurt Harris. Also, implementing IF per Leangains. Results have been good but I cant get past whereI am. Typical... (more)
