Here are the stats:
BF%: No clue. (Starting to see my abs...)
Current cycle: Cutting
Calories per day: 1700 - 2100 (Currently averaging around 1850)
Fat per day: 90g - 110g
Protein per day: 190g - 210g
Carbs per day: 35g - 100g (Currently averaging 86 - I eat "clean")
Sugar per day: Under 25g
1) I have done low carb weeks with a refeed on one of the seven days. I have done refeeds with lots of oatmeal, Fiber One, bagels, tons of vegetables, etc.
2) I have done other refeeds where I have eaten Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, organic sugary treats such as organic pop tarts, organic cookies, organic snack bars, etc.
My question is, Do I need the sugar to kick start my metabloism every week? I am really not sure at this point. During both types of refeeds, my results have not been completely clear. I have done searches and read other articles on refeeds and I cannot come to the conclusion of whether or not sugar is needed for a "proper" refeed. The reason I ask specifically about sugar is because my daily intake of carb grams and sugar grams are amazingly low.
Anyone care to comment or have suggestions?

When I carb up I tend to stick solely to brown rice as default food (keeps the water retention down), but I add handfuls of cereal here and there, an apple, fruit mixes etc etc.
Just eat tones, but with complex (natural) carbs.Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.
