Sample text

As always, take the above as a recommendation and estimation; it should not be interpreted as an immutable form of holy writ. Controlled versus uncontrolled diet breaks As far as I can tell, in the Wing study I cited a few chapters back, the dieting subjects were not given any recommendations on what or how to eat during their planned diet breaks. I’ll only note that, whatever they did, they didn’t regain much (if any) weight and appear not to have lost total food control. I already mentioned some of the reasons I think it worked out this way in that chapter so I won’t rehash that again.

Basically, I can’t make tremendous predictions on what’s going on in this category. For individuals in exercise category 1 (performing regular, fairly intensive weight training), the recommendations above are either a 5 hour refeed once a week or a full day refeeding every 10-14 days. I should note that a category 2 dieter who is involved in large amounts of intensive activity may need to move to the refeed recommendations for category 1 dieters. That is, if they are depleting their muscle glycogen on a nearly weekly basis, they will need to do a refeed more often.

Invariably these folks don’t see the reason or rationale for refeeds but are seemingly unaware that they are, metabolically speaking, in the minority. Since they don’t seem to need them, they can’t see why anybody else would. As well, some people seem to respond staggeringly poorly to refeeding, especially if it’s done for too long or too frequently. They tend to report extreme weight gains that just doesn’t come back off as it should and the refeeds end up hurting their diet more than helping it.
