    A meal.

    A day can set you way back unless you stay within +500 cals over. IMO

    Meal 100%

    A whole day is asking for weight gain of the non-lean variety.

    I myself do a meal, on leg or back day, once a week or so

    Yeah whatever I can fit into my stomach in an hour lol. If I do a day or too long of a time, I've found it harder to get the weight off.

    I do an entire cheat day. Depends on what calorie consumption you are trying to aim for. I could easily consume an entire day's worth of calories in one meal (think cheesecake factory) , however I spread out my refeed meal/day over the course of 10 hours. Makes my life enjoyable

    Refeeds and cheats are completely diff

    Refeed day meticulous intake of specific macros for leptin release with minimal fat storage

    Cheat day all out ****fest to reward a loss of weight which will inevitably be gained back during said cheat day

    understood, however I am used to people using the terms refeed/cheat meals interchangeably. Bad assumption about the OP on my part perhaps. Yeah I was talking about a controlled refeed. A true cheat meal for me may be 2 chocolate chip cookies or a slice of cake. My controlled refeeds are enough to keep me happy without the vegas style binge cheat fest

    This
    and most people dont Calculate Cheats, and some people have endless pits.
    Eating junk all day is just not optimal regardless of your goal

    Always a meal.

    Also Article i wrote on Refeeds vs Cheats:

    http://www.machinemuscle.com/refeeds...on-metabolism/

    "Trying both the cheat meal and the refeed may be wise, see how you respond, see how you react as far as weight gain from both processes, and see how you mentally and physically feel. These are KEY indications on what works best for your body and what you should utilize in the future to help dial you into the best shape of your life!

    Others may want to take a complete diet break for a week or even up to 10 days depending on how long they have dieted. I would suggest this for those coming off a contest prep diet (16+ weeks long) or a very rigorous diet such as Lyle McDonalds Ultimate Diet 2.0 or Rapid Fat Loss Diet (RFL). This will help get rid of the metabolic slowdown and the mental lethargy of the caloric deficit they have been placed in for so long.

    In the end dieting comes down one major factor “Dieting smarter and not harder than it needs to be.” Taking a step back (as in refeeding or a cheat meal) can help you and taking two steps forward (increased weight loss, and satisfying your cravings) when done properly and executed. You will have to read your body, read the scale, and look in the mirror to see how you react to those things and then based off what your progress is keep fine tuning to see what suits your body best.

    exactly. I tend to gain a couple lbs initially but it goes away towards the middle of the week. at the end of the month, if I am on a refeed diet to lose fat, I'll lose weight consistently while still staying strong and energetic.

    I dont really call it a cheat-I still try and keep my macros and cals within their normal ranges. A cheat for me is eating fried chicken instead of grilled or baked, or pounding down some mac and cheese as my carb of choice instead of wild rice or lentils.

    Doing it like that helps me keep everything in check while still enjoying myself and lifes little bites of happiness.
