Thanks for your answer. I will just bug you one more time.
I'll reword it:
2 days of 500cal surplus of my maintance level(on training days on sunday and thursday)
5 days of -850cal cut of my maintance level(rest days)
That means monday, tuesday and wednesday all are restdays which mean 3 days in a row with -850cal cut of my maintance level each day intill my workout day on thursday, when I refeed.
Will such a big calorie cut -850 of my maintance level 3 days in a row harm my diet in any way before I refeed again on thursday? (monday,tuesday and wednesday)
I mean -850 cal cut of my maintance level is pretty big and doing that 3 days in a row before I refeed maybe isn't that optimal for keeping muscle and strength?
Or maybe it's better to have 3 refeed days/week, then it's only two days in a row with such a big calorie cut from my maintance level.
I hope I made it clear what I mean.
This would make everything clear for me.
One last point I want to make before we move on. Refeeds are often wrongly proclaimed to increase metabolic rate. In reality, a 24hr refeed won’t actually make a substantial difference in your metabolism, at least in the big picture. It’s just too short of an energy flux to make an impact. In order to really reverse all the issues associated with dieting you would need to refeed for multiple days, possibly even weeks. In that case, we are no longer talking about refeeds, but an actual diet break or diet deload as I like to call it. Find more information about diet breaks here ==> Diet Deloading .
Four years ago I ate crap ALL THE TIME. Sugar was addicting to me and I was super thin. I got pregnant and after that would become VERY ill when I ate anything with white flour and sugar. I have just gotten to where I can eat honey in small amounts (the foods would cause panick attacks which I had never had in my life) I was trying to get healthy so in the midst of panick attacks and new baby and a lot of stress from being afraid of what was happening to me I started a low fat diet (thinking it was healthy) and was basically starving myself (seemed like then I reacted to everything so I didn’t know what to eat) and picked up running during which I miscarried 🙁 Started not caring and eating a lot of G/F breads and stuff. STILL underweight and VERY dry skin and food allergies. Started GAPS and did the INTRO and basically ruined myself with it… I had such blood sugar issues that I could barely eat and was shaking so bad… 2 months later and I am working with a doc on adrenal fatigue… I am stuck in bed with two boys under 5. My blood sugar is still up and down like crazy and everything is wearing me out. some days better then others but the laying around is so depressing. So, what the heck do I eat???? we have finally (today actually) decided that a paleo/wapf way of eating would be best right now. I went back to eating anything I am not “allergic” to and have gotten HUGE! I am not allowed to excercise and have to rest a lot. I worry about my blood sugar and not excercising… isn’t that bad for your heart?? I am going insane… lol… I am thinking high fat/med protein/raw yogurts and moderate nuts/cheese/fruits with plenty of veggies and one meal with properly prepared grains… any tips?! sorry, just really looking for answers…
