    Also when taking protein does it matter if it's a whey protein shake or actual food. Can you do like 50/50

    Honestly, there a ton of principles on refeeds..

    What i did was ignore protein, and just eat lower fat foods, high in carbs. You will still be getting protein.

    The Refeed/carb up MEGA thread..

    How lean are you now?

    As of this morning I'm 5'9" 153.5lbs and around 12% Bf. The protein question was more for the no carb days. Thx for the link I'll give it a read through.

    He is NOT doing keto so his refeeds are different.

    I'm doing 160g protein. What scares me is that means I shud take in like 70gs off fat. I need to get it out of my head that fat cals turn to fat

    At such low cals and not being on gear you probably aren't even in ketosis so don't worry about it. a little bit of carbs will go a long way in sparing muscle, as little as 50g a day has shown to have great effects on nitrogen retention.

    Do whatever you want to be honest...

    You are at such low cals that anything will work and muscle mass doesn't seem to be your main priority or you would not even eat so low of cals.

    Also fat is NOT the enemy in most cases but for those cal numbers you could do something like 180p, 70c, 30f if you want a low fat diet. Again this is shorter term.

    I am a bit larger and doing 300p, 200c, 50f (max)
