    I've been moving away from it. I prefer the higher GI and lower fiber content in white rice flour and tapioca starch. Plus, buckwheat just doesn't taste that good. If you use sorghum flour, corn flour, brown rice flour or cocoa powder though, I would recommend adding a tablespoon of buckwheat to the preferment. Buckwheat contains very high levels of phytase, the enzyme that breaks down phytic acid. Simply soaking or fermenting sorghum or cocoa won't do much to remove the high levels of phytate, but adding a little buckwheat to the preferment is a great way to remove the phytic acid without adding gluten (most people use rye flour for its high phytase content but rye contains gluten). I will say this - a little buckwheat and/or sorghum goes well in the banana bread because generally banana breads are darker and it lends a good flavor. However, for pies and cornbread, keep it away.

    Geez. Got my hands on UD2 and started... didn't realize that as a guy who's about 185, 15%-ish BF, that I'll need nearly 1200g carbs (I walk a lot) and ~200g protein on the refeed day.

    TWO of those cornbreads (according to your recipe) only get up around 3,000 calories! Including a banana/pumpkin bread gets me to ~4200 calories, with ~815g carbs and ~190g protein (and ~40g fat). O_O

    If I can find/buy a springform pan I may give that pumpkin/carrot cheesecake a whirl, too. That'd get up to ~5100 calories, ~915g carbs and ~300g protein (and ~55g fat). Perhaps the pumpkin pie. Who knows.

    LOL! My mom is the same exact way. Sadly I haven't inherited the same "good eye" when it comes to cooking. She is an awesome cook and whenever I ask her for recipes she says the same thing, that she doesn't use a recipe, just eyeballs everything.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your method. Sounds awesome. I'll definitely be trying this out. Yum!

    After scrutinizing this thread, my verdict is .......I dig and ChocoTaco OWN Bartertown(Mad Max reference). Everything looks great for a refeed. When I decide to cheat it is because I don't have the right equipment, so instead I go out and buy shit food(DQ blizzards, cheesecakes, etc). I am really good at sticking to a solid meal plan...but it is a few days a month where I decide those days' calories and food choice don't play an impact on me( i bought a pie pan, ice cream maker, mixers, cookie sheets, etc for all those delicious refeed foods,,,and hell even if it isn't a refeed and want to cheat,,,works out too )

    I also bought these frequent purchase items( the point of posting the links is so hopefully someone says, "you idiot, you should have went to this site for a better/cheaper product"):

    Well, Choco, maybe you can help me out here. I gave the corn bread recipe a go this week, and encountered a bit of a problem. The recipe as given made for a very, very dry batter. It took nearly two cups of additional water to make it into an acceptably loose batter. Fermentation went all right, though. I made two batches, and threw in a can of pumpkin puree into the second. I probably took out the two breads early from the oven, but I'm also curious if my location made a significant difference in the batter's consistency and requirement of more water.

    23 lbs of pork, 2 spaghetti squash, 3 pounds of zucchini, 4 pumpkins of varying sizes and 2 butternut squash. I think I have my squash covered this week. Ever since the weather changed I've been craving squash like mad. Your move, Mother Nature. Oh yea, chocolate was on sale for $1.99/bar. I figured I'd try some flavors.

    I never found regular orange pumpkins very appetizing. I thought those were mainly for decoration and carving pumpkins? Please prove me wrong XD

    Oh they're delicious. They need a light touch of something sweet if you want to eat pumpkin alone, but they're fantastic.
