Just out of interest for those that have implemented carb ups/refeeds into their diets, what sort of time frame between the carb ups/refeeds has proved to be most successful for you?

I have tried almost all....2 days, 5 days, 7 days, 10 days, even 14 at first. I perfer doing them every 5 days, I feel this is best as far as getting my metabolism going, and after 3 weeks, all my workouts have been on a refeed day to balance everything out.

Every 3.5 days (Following UD2). Haven't tried any other ways.

I think it depends on a lot of things, two of which are how lean you are (leaner people need to refeed more frequently) and how depleted you're getting as a result of your workouts (High volume/high rep workouts and lots of cardio could get you fairly depleted in probably as little as 2 days, while lower volume/lower rep workouts without cardio probably wouldn't get you very depleted for much longer).
