Example text

The low-carber might add a baked potato or some bread (or dessert), the low-fat dieter might add fries or something greasy, as I mentioned above. Some previous approaches to the free meal concept (for example Protein Power by the Eades) have further limited the free meal to one hour in duration. This may be helpful if it keeps you from turning what should be one meal into a several hour graze (and then rationalizing that it was only one ‘meal’). At the same time, don’t fall into the trap of seeing how much food you can eat in an hour if you do this.

Most people feel crappy when their blood glucose crashes (this also tends to stimulate hunger) and refeeds can cause that. com Getting adequate protein, fiber and a small amount of dietary fat with each high-carbohydrate meal goes a long way towards solving this problem. If adding those to your high-carbohydrate intake doesn’t solve the problem (this is especially true for category 3 dieters and to a lesser degree everyone else), you have basically two options. The first is to pick much more unrefined carbohydrate sources, whole grains and such and avoid all of the refined stuff.

Anyhow, I have found that the above guidelines work fairly well for a majority of people. But there are always outliers when you deal with human biology and I want to mention a few exceptions to the above. First are folks who diet just fine without refeeds. They are in a small minority but they are there; I suspect they are part of that spendthrift metabolic type I mentioned elsewhere. Invariably these folks don’t see the reason or rationale for refeeds but are seemingly unaware that they are, metabolically speaking, in the minority.
