Example text

If you’re on an exercise program, especially if you’re doing weight training, it would be ideal to put the free meal on a day when you exercised. As above, it would probably be ideal if you at least kept up some of the parameters of your normal diet and make relatively healthy choices. Just go ahead and have some of the forbidden stuff too. So try to make sure and get a source of protein and a salad at least, something healthy. To that you can add some of the forbidden stuff. The low-carber might add a baked potato or some bread (or dessert), the low-fat dieter might add fries or something greasy, as I mentioned above.

______ * ______ = ________ Weight BF% Total fat Now subtract the pounds of fat from your total weight, this is how much LBM you have. ________ - ______ = ________ Total weight Total fat LBM Next, I want you to use Table 1 on the next page to determine what dieting category you are in (1, 2 or 3) based on your current bodyfat percentage. Please note that, to a degree, the separation between these categories is arbitrary, it would be more accurate to put them on a continuum. However, for ease of use, I have to make the divisions somewhere and this is where they fall.

Barry Sears wasn’t wrong when he said that eating is a hormonal event and, in this case, by eating a lot of carbohydrates over a specific period of time, we’re causing specific hormonal processes to be affected. That is to say a little less convolutedly, the goal of a structured refeed is not simply to overeat carbohydrates for the sake of overeating carbohydrates (although that alone may provide some psychological benefit) but to do so for specific physiological reasons: normalizing the hormones which are regulating bodyweight, refilling muscle glycogen, etc.
