Some questions about a carb refeed
My plan is as follows:
6 oz 2% greek yogurt (3.5g fat)
1/2 banana and handful of strawberries
1/2 chicken breast
1 cup sweet potatoes (unfortunately, already buttered - so maybe 1/2 T butter)
A few Boston lettuce leaves
3 or 4 oz Flounder
2/3 cup White rice
3 oz 2% greek yogurt
Some questions -
How much fruit and non-starchy vegetables are detrimental? A banana, an apple, strawberries - is that too much fructose, and then the lettuce? Do I have enough starch?
Do I have too much fat for this to work? Is 2% yogurt ok? It's just what I happen to have.
I plugged it in cronometer, and this is 80g protein, 185g carbs, 16g fat. (Note, I am a very small person, so all is lower).
Planned exercise is sprints.

Seems fine to me as far as a refeed goes. You might check out this recent post....Carb Refeeding and Weight Loss | Mark's Daily Apple
