    Cool 10 Weeks Out!! Refeed or No?

    I am doing my first bodybuilding show on May 26, 2017. I have no coaching or any real knowledge on refeeding. I started cutting at 212lbs, roughly 14% BF (6 weeks ago), now I'm 196.3lbs 11-12% BF. I think I cut calories way too quickly (2300 cals cutting, maintenance unkown?) and about 2 weeks ago I ****ed up and binged hardcore for 2 days. I think I was so depleted and was running off of pure willpower and we all know how that goes ... Anyways I've done a bunch of reading and I think I want to try out the refeed. I've asked my posing coach and a personal trainer and they both said to give it a shot (1x every 2 weeks). To be honest I'm scared ****less to do it because I want to be lean n' mean! My lifts are starting to get really tough, overall just lethargic and zero energy during classes. Any advice? I do intermittent fasting w/ carb cycling. I'd do a refeed every 2 weeks depending on how I feel.


    Cutting Cals 2300, Maintenance Unkown?
    Currently 196.3lbs 6 weeks into contest prep
    Goal weight 188lbs

    Lift days 4x/week 2,300 cals 216c/235p/55f
    Cardio 4x/week

    Rest days Fri-Sunday 2300 cals 115c/235p/100f

    Refeed Macros? 2,850 cals 411c/200p/45F *10% above maintenance*

    The fact that you cracked and binged for two days shows that you're being to restrictive. Keep the calories the same and drop your protien and fats down to as little as possible. I wouldn't up the overall calories on a refeed until your daily cals are lower. Are you planing on staying at 2300 cals the whole time? Cause your prob going to have to go lower the closer you get to the contest to keep losing weight. No cardio? And only training 4 days a week? Prob going to add more training
