    Refeeds are planned and still counted, typically being an increase in carbohydrate intake to replenish glycogen for various hormonal, mood, energy benefits.

    Cheat meals are a "i deserve a break from being so strict" meal where you eat what you want. No counting or tracking. Ideally (to limit damage) just one meal.

    In the midst of a good dietary regiment neither should be detrimental. If you are already very lean I opt for refeeds only, to keep weight loss from stalling

    Refeeds are used for low carb diets. You have one day where you greatly increase your carbs but keep fats as low as possible. This restores glycogen, boosts leptin. Cheat meals are just one "screw it" meal that consists of something not on your diet. Both can be beneficial if used correctly .
