Refeeds- 50% Carb Increase, 1g protein per lb. of bw.
and fats low.

Now, these macros below are with the same calories. Should i increase calories on a refeed day?

210/315/35- Every 6-12 days


Hey man, re-feeds I usually go with maintenance (15 cals/lb) or above (16-20) depending on the goal and how lean you are. Protein steady at 1g, yes fats relatively low when you are jacking up carbs. High carb intake limits fat oxidation, so you don't want a bunch of dietary fat in that situation. Then all remaining calories from carbs.

I think 100g is a good level and most people shouldn't go much lower. That's actually right around what I recommend for sedentary populations, with 1-2 pieces whole fruit and unlimited vegetables making up the majority of that 100g.

The thing is the research I've seen is that low carb ketogenic diets are no more effective than low carb NON-KETOGENIC diets. And keto-dieting has several metabolic and physiological drawbacks. So why go that route if you don't have to.

Pretty happy with my overall mass etc. but im struggling maintaining strength at this stage of the cut, todays session i really struggled...

My 1rms have dropped a fair bit along the way but ive tried not to let it worry me and ive just reset my target weights to compensate BUT it kinda does bother me losing this kinda strength because i see a long road ahead to get back to where i was ( 315lb squat and 450lb deadlift ) even though i still consider myself a novice.

Current diet is around 1900-2000cals a day, 180g protein, 50-60g fat and remainder carbs, pretty much stick to that fat and protein level and just vary the carbs depending on activity level. Refeed is usually once a week and carbs are increased and fats are dropped. As far as i can see everything is being done correct. Is it normal to suffer such strength losses on a cut? Is there any tips to maintain it?

My program i follow is based around 5/3/1 with a power movement at the start of the session, then hypertrophy work following so a bit of a PHAT kinda program but based around 5/3/1. On a bulk this program served me really well and it did up until now on the cut as well but the last couple of weeks have been a struggle...

Sorry for the long post man, just wanted to cover all the obvious stuff.


Just keep in mind that training to maximize performance is different than training to maximize appearance, bodybuilding and powerlifting are different sports, etc. Not to say you can't have a mix of both, but you're not going to be your strongest at your lowest body fat percentage.

Overall the diet doesn't seem to crazy or restrictive, right around 12cals/lb so that's decent. You know the one thing I might suggest you look is what you are doing pre-workout. So for pure cosmetic purposes I like training in the fasted state for a variety of physiological reasons. But that is not always wise for from a performance perspective. The thing is since glucose fuels the brain and CNS, depleted glycogen (especially liver glycogen) can impair performance. So maybe add a light meal of some protein and a piece of fruit (some carbs for liver glycogen without the rebound hypoglycemia of starches) a few hours before your lifts.

Nate what do you think about the GOMAD diet and the claims that adding 20 rep breathing squats with at least 6 cups of milk per day will help a person add 10-15lbs of lean muscle?

I though the gomad diet is a gallon of milk a day not just 6 cups a day

Hi Nate,
I have no Idea who you are but I would like to have your take on protein requirements.

I'v read the abstract of maybe 20 studies, and the whole on maybe 5 studies on this particular question.

It seems to me that some studies show that a 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight is superior to ,5 grams per pound of bw.

Other studies show no difference, same amount of LBM is attained at high (1 gram per pound) normal (.5 gram per pound).

Have you any experience in this area?
What's your take on protein req?
