What's a Refeed?

What's a Refeed?

anywherefitnesspt.com


HIGH CARB DAY TO BURN FAT! When dieting & in a calorie deficit (cutting ) your leptin hormone levels will drop down with low leptin levels it becomes much harder to burn body fat as leptin is KING of all fat burning hormones, so including a re-feed DAY into your cutting diet is highly recommended. 


On a re-feed day you increase your carbohydrate intake by 100% (or more) increasing your calories up to maintenance level or slightly above so you are in a calorie surplus for this day (but still in a weekly deficit).

This re-feed is designed to boost your metabolism and increase your leptin levels so that you can continue to burn fat like a furnace!

My favorite re-feed foods are: Frozen yogurt, rice, oats, bananas, pancakes and yes, low fat cookies or anything low in protein/fat and high in CARBS!
