One or Two?
Do you guys keep a static low carb for 6 straight days then onto the refeed?
How's one hamburger with fries on a refeed day, including other higher carb meals throughout the day? Yay or Nay?

Ive only done one prep, so I am hardly an expert by any stretch.....by my $.02.......I think it depends on how low your carbs go and how lean you are. When I first started dieting, my carbs remained constant, daily. I didnt refeed at all until I hit a stalling point. Then, it was one day a week. Once I got leaner and started to stall more, I dropped carbs and I refed twice a week....One light refeed and heavier refeed. I would stick to clean foods for your refeeds. Your body is starved for nutrients and calories when youre dieting. Why "refeed" it with crap? There were days that I incorporated higher GI carbs like pancakes on refeeds, but I tried to stay away from the greasy crap.
A buddy of mine would go the entire week on low carbs and refeed over the weekend for his first two meals. But he did not eat a burger and fries, stuck to 2-3 cups of Cheerios.
