Hi, first time carb cycler here....

how high do I want my cals & carbs at on a refeed day while carb cycling? i'm staying sub 40g carbs all week with 1 refeed day (today). should i refeed at my maintenence or above maint or what? i was thinking 250 cals over maint with carbs at about 140?

I can't remember which plan I saw said it, but someone suggested setting your carbs at 2g per pound of bodyweight on a full on refeed. Definitely go above maintenance and don't fear the carbs.

Depending how you function, you might want to do it more or less gluten free since some people bloat like crazy with a lot of wheat.
