    I failed to consider the refeed days (since I haven't had one yet). I could probably create a large surplus on refeed day. Hopefully enough to even everything out.

    How often are you refeeding? I am at around 13% bf at the moment and I want that under 10%. I guess I will start scouring these 86 pages, the info has got to be here somewhere regarding leanness and refeeds.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    I think someone did post for males that 10-15% bf you should refeed at least once per week.

    I am doing my refeed once weekly to ensure diet compliance even though I'm sure I can get away with once every 2 weeks. It was nice to eat something other than meat and eggs for a day.

    I just read that refeeds should be primarily starches instead of glucose/fructose/lactose/other sugars on the leangains website. I also remember on bodybuilding.com there was an article about how you should keep it to mostly starches but start every meal with a small piece of fruit. My first refeed was 50% fruits. I am planning on eating mostly potatoes/sweet potatoes/rice/veggies + 1 pint of blueberries this time around.

    I am considering going back to my regular primal eating but just doubling down on all carb sources for the refeed day.

    That would likely mean eating a half pound each of sweet and white potatoes, a banana, a couple handfuls of berries, honey in my morning coffee... Plus lots of other plants and animals.

    Thanks Neckhammer! I'm pleased with the muscle growth but I'd still like to drop some body fat, just seems to take a little longer to get cut at 61, but I'll keep plugging away at it.

    Wow, great job Canuck!!!


    On another note, what's for dinner: grass-fed boneless beef ribs, steamed 3 hours until tender, brushed with rendered beef tallow and spices and put under oven boiler for 20 minutes. Since beef ribs are much cheaper than steak I might do this more often.

    I rubbed a tiny bit of sea salt, and black pepper on the ribs before steaming and used a modified texas BBQ sauce recipe (using beef tallow instead of oil, stevia instead of molasses). Maybe after the challenge I'll be more liberal with liquid smoke.

    This s&e challenge has had the side effect of making me more inventive with different ways to cook beef. Yum.
