Food for thought:
Matt Stone’s High Calorie Refeed of 2012
Billy Craig’s 6,000 Calorie Weight Loss
Toast with Jam & Cheese Spreads
Cadbury Chocolate Desserts
My Refeed of Early/Mid 2013
Lots of carbs & Fat
No processed foods except for white cane sugar
In this small sample size those had a lot of carbs + fat during refeed (Me, Matt) gained weight and kept it on. Those who had high carbs with low fat (Billy) lost weight.
My gut feeling says that Matt Stone is on the right track with needing to feed to fix the metabolism. I think where he went wrong (and I went wrong) is mixing the fats and carbs together.
What if people modified their refeeds somewhat.
Possible Option #1
What if during a high calorie refeed period people had a high fat low carb breakfast. Then wait about 4 hours. Then eat as may carbs and their body can handle for the rest of the day/evening.
Possible Option #2
What if people did their refeeds with high carb / low fat. Then when the refeed is over go back to eating normally with mixed fat/protein/carbs.
