Example text

For example, if you start a diet and exercise program, it’s not uncommon to lose bodyfat while gaining muscle weight; this means that your bodyweight may not change (making you think that your diet isn’t working) but your bodyfat percentage is going down. However, after writing that whole long paragraph for you to read, I’m not going to give you a method that really allows that here. For the purposes of this booklet, the main reason to really have any idea of what your bodyfat percentage is is that it will determine how you utilize the three different types of flexible dieting I’m going to describe in the next chapters.

100 grams of sucrose (this is easy to go over if you eat a lot of candy or junk food) and 50 grams of fructose (which is a probably 5-7 normal pieces of fruit or a rather small amount of most refined foods) should be about the maximum during a refeed and this does limit the types of foods you can eat somewhat. So all starches, moderate amounts of fruit (2-3 pieces total), and even some junk food (again, not too much) is fair game. This should give you plenty of food freedom and allow you to fulfill any nagging carbohydrate cravings (people tend to crave carbs more than anything else on a diet) without causing problems.

If the response is poor and no major mistakes (in terms of amounts or types of foods) were made, it may indicate that the dieter shouldn’t do refeeds (I’ll come back to this below). Recall from a few chapters back that the exercise categories are as follows: Category 1 is for individuals involved in fairly intensive weight training 2-3 days per week for at least an hour, or long duration or high intensity endurance exercise and category 2 is for everyone else. That means that category 2 includes people who are not exercising, people only doing low to moderate intensity aerobic exercise, or people just lifting baby weights in the gym who don’t work very hard.
