I've been dieting all summer, and carb cycling the last 3+ weeks.
I've been following somewhat of a High carb/low carb/no carb template but I'm wondering if I should tweak a few things to get the most out of it. I was doing 2 refeeds a week on the high carb days, although one day wasn't really a true refeed, just higher than normal carbs to get me through to my true refeed on saturday.
The low carb days are pretty low, usually under 100 g carbs and on the no carb days I literally take in less than 20 g carbs.
I'm about 12% bf right now. I've read the lower you get the more often you should refeed. Should I up my carbs on my wednesday "high carb day?" Even though it's high carbs I still probably only take in 300 - 400 grams.
I do very well on low carbs, no problems with energy, etc. I actually hate eating carbs, they fill me up really fast. Can I push things a little more and do pretty much 4 - 5 no carb days a week with 2 refeeds?
I guess my main problem is, I hate refeeds/eating carbs in general because mentally it feels like I'm slowing my cut progress. If I could eat no carbs everyday of the week and get away with it I would. I know that's def. a terrible idea, but I'd like to know what the limits are.
Have you checked out the TNT diet on Men's Health? Sounds like it would be a good match for you.

"Now we're finally getting to the chicken or the egg question," I grinned. "Did I eat all that food because my size gives me more of an appetite, or did I get to be this big because I've been forcing myself to eat like this for years?"

I think I'm gonna try a CKD diet after I finish this week out.
