    I'm starting to think I should refeed more often than once per week. Granted, I'm only at the end of my second week, but I think I would get more weight room performance out of a 4/-5 day refeed cycle, and I'm already very lean. I'm not seeing myself really lean down even more so far at the end of week 2, but I'll push this out another week and evaluate, still doing the 7-day refeed. Next time I do this hack I'll change the refeed timing up a bit.

    I agree, I think I'll experiment with a 4 day refeed cycle and go 6 weeks, next time I go on a VLC body comp focused cycle.

    My whole to refeed or not to refeed dilemma just became a moot point as I've just polished off 4 very large homemade chocolate chip cookies...oh well I've eaten non stop all day...guess I will call it a refeed/binge and move on...tomorrow is another day....bye bye losses : (

    It seems like my fat loss is slowed down, as I still have a small belt of fat when sitting around my lower abdomen, but its nothing to fret about, I probably need larger abs!

    I like the idea of twice a week refeed. But I am sticking to once a week for this challenge. Now that I am in the swing of things, I think it will be much much easier to dial in, how many carbs, and when to eat throughout the week. I like the idea of having sugars and carbohydrates as a rare fuel, instead of a daily staple that we must consume.

    aprimalmomma, dont worry about the cookies, I am sure you will bounce right back into this.

    After avoiding gluten for so long, I have convinced myself that I will feel sick after eating wheat or wheat flour. I probably wouldn't, but it keeps me in check for the most part. Ohhh, someone brought in cookies and doughnuts for work today....better not eat one so I dont have to deal with an upset stomach later.

    I'm totally with you. Have made due with dumbbell 8x8 sets for two weeks but was looking forward to getting back to the olympic barbell. LOL @ smith machine, those things are crap in my opinion. That's where I draw the line, would rather do nothing.

    I shared a giant plate of sushi and rolls with my husband for dinner. And ate more strawberries. Later I'll have yogurt and honey and more strawberries.

    My breakfast went right through me, and when supper finally came around I was so hungry while cooking I ended up munching on bacon and ham. Not a lot, but, well... I was planning on going out for steak, but when the plans fell through, it was on top of a totally messed up day. I have no idea how much I ate. Do you subtract the meal that passed right through you and eat extra to compensate?
