I'm thinking of having 1 refeed day a week. This is what I'm thinking of doing, I'm cutting btw.

On Saturdays(I lift on saturday also)
1. Eat high gi foods at every meal
2. Avoid fish foil
3. Eat ~3000 calories, this is 1.2 X maintanence for me


Is that it, is there anything else I should do?

Currently I eat 1800 calories on offdays and 2000 calories on workout days. My maintence is 2400-2600 calories.

Still take ur fish oil. Keep everything the same but add in maybe 100-150g carbs.

Eat that piece of pizza you've been fiending for all week. The trick is to not go stir crazy over the fact that its a "cheat" day. Thats the way I look at it. I would maybe add a bowl of cereal to breakfast. A bowl of oatmeal to snack #1. Some ramen noodles to lunch. Some rice to snack #2. Pizza w/a protein shake for dinner. And a red potato w/cottage cheese before bed.

Along with whatever else you're protein requirements are. Just add this stuff onto you're diet.

And do a little extra cardio that day. It's always good to burn an extra 3-500 calories on a refeed day, cuz you don't want it to go into fat storage.

Gettin the gist of it? I hope I helped.
