No such thing as a free carb, with the exception of fiber, which you don't count. If you eat 4 lb's of brocolli and it yeilds 29 carbs after subracting fiber, then you just ate 29 carbs be it sugar or brocolli.

Net Carbs ( which you count ) = Total Carbs - Total Fiber

I have been on A.D since November and have used it to bulk and have been on my contest prep for the last 3 1/2 weeks. I love it! Never felt better! I always count carbs total. I don't mess with fiber subtracting.
PM if you have questions.

I've also been on the anabolic diet.
2 day slower carb-ups seem to yeild more of a metabolic boost for the next 5 days when going low cal.
I can add 1 rep to any exersize if I have a 1500 calorie carb meal 2-3 hours prior to lifting, lol.

I got real good results refeeding for 12 hours but I've been doing more like 48hr refeeds.
Pretty sure it depends on B/F% as well as how your body handles carbs.
I'd try 2-3 weeks with 48hr refeeds, then 2-3 weeks with 36, then 2-3 weeks of 24, and finally 2-3 weeks of 12 to see how your body reacts.
