there are plenty of people who think this is a good idea. basically, it's like a refeed...just a crappy one (crappy referring to the food, not the nature of the refeed). i know that ferris and a BBS guy named Joel Marion both advocate the idea of eating like a pack of teenagers once a week to kick your leptin production into high gear. i'll do this from time to time, at certain parties or for birthdays/holidays/etc...i just have to get control of how much i'm having or i can really feel sluggish and basically want to throw up for a couple of days. it's not going to cause any long term damage...have some pizza if it's going to connect you with people.
