Refeed Day means “reloading day” or “refilling day”. In other diets, it is often called a cheat day. However, the Refeed Day differs significantly from the cheat day. See our comparison below:
|Increased calorie intake||Increased calorie intake|
|Mostly unhealthy foods||Healthy foods|
Goal: Eat everything that does not fit into the nutrition Plan
Goal: To rebalance your macronutrient balance after several days of calorie deficit
A Refeed Day can be useful during your weight loss process to boost your body’s macro and micronutrients. The focus here is on increased carbohydrate intake. This means more complex carbohydrates from whole grains, oatmeal, potatoes, and legumes. In addition, you’ll eat a little less fat on this day. Carbohydrates are best eaten before and after training and exercise. That’s how you prevent food cravings during your diet. In addition, your muscles store the carbs, so you have enough power for training again later.
