Do you NEED to refeed?
🤔I had a question in my DM’s whether refeed days were mandatory for a diet…
The short answer is NO. 🙅🏼♀️
They are a tool you can use for diet adherence, managing social outings or to break the monotony of dieting with a little extra room for calorie dense foods over 2 days so that you can still live while on a fat loss journey.
👉🏻 There is some discussion that the refeed days from carbs can assist in increasing leptin levels and therefore periodically reduce any downward regulation caused by dieting and help maintain a steady rate of fat loss over time.
👉🏻 But mostly refeed days are utilised for diet adherence.
👉🏻 If you are in a steady deficit, not too aggressive and managing your calorie intake then not needed.
If you're in an aggressive deficit and struggle to do much with your calories then yes its a tool you can use throughout your diet phase.
Particularly around managing social occasions.
