Hey guys,

Just started my cut yesterday and have been reading how prolonged dieting can slow the metabolism. I was thinking of incorporating 1 day a week of eating at maintenance and not necessarily hit my macros. Anyone else do this or anyone have any opinions on it?

What benefit is there to not hitting your macros?

yeah sure, but once a week seems a bit excessive and the effects of refeeds ware off rather quickly which stinks.

Lyle McDonald has written a lot about refeeds and diet breaks.
