The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Can someone explain "refeeding" to me?

    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.

    Boost Leptin hormone

    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.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
