Would doing cardio on a refeed day hinder leptin level elevations?

I avoided it today after my workout since one of the ideas behind the refeed day is to be in a caloric surplus.

i can't answer the specifics about leptin levels but one of the ideas behind a refeed is to rest and regroup the troops, so to speak. any intense cardio session would nullify the benefits of resting. HOWEVER, i have read a number of things where short, light cardio during refeeds can help minimize water-bloat.

i think it depends also on what type of diet, type and duration of refeed as well.
