The Real Amy I completely agree with you. It’s taken me awhile to get here, but I don’t believe refeeding is necessary unless there is an eating disorder. I had an eating disorder as a teenager an recovered by just eating like a normal person. I gained a few pounds but nothing major. This time around I believed I needed to refeed and gained a lot of weight. I was miserable. Maybe it helped, there’s no way to know. I’m 4 months postpartum and I’ve lost the pregnancy weight but would like to lose more. I’m eating healthy foods and being active when I can, which is the best I can do in my sleep deprived state. I think the ‘secret’ to weight loss has been right in front of is the whole time, we just didn’t want to believe it. Eat less than your body burns. Not yo yo or starve, just eat sensibly and move your body.
