I know what bulking and cutting is, but what is refeeding? Any explanation would be good. Thanks in advance.

If you are on a low carb or strict cal deficient diet sometime it helps getting in some extra cals coming mainly from carbs to replenish glycogen levels and leptin levels.

At the bottom of the last thread that I posted there is a link to an article that will help in explaining the concept to you.

it's up to you, refeeds give you energy. They also spike insulin. I usually do mine post workout.

I think they should be used cautiously and only when cutting on low carbs.

Should go have a gander on the main site www.wannabebig.com and read the three part interview Maki did with Lyle. Very informative on refeeds and dieting in general.
