Cheat/Refeed on a Cut?
Got a question on this controversial day, lol. I was wondering what sort of region your calories would be in whilst cutting. Im 6 weeks in to a cut and decided to calculate my days cheat/refeed. I came to somewhere around 5000cals.
Surely this is counterproductive to my cutting goals, as i will be storing bodyfat from the excess cals Wouldn't it be better to not cheat at all?
Any adivce would be appreciated.

Cheating is necessary to keep the metabolism in check. What's more important in most cutting diets is not neccesarily the caloric intake alone, but also the intake of carbohydrates, which are often lower in cutting diets.

Yeah, i clean carb up day would suit me much better. I think it will also help with discipline, as it seems junk always leads to more junk. Luckily im keeping it down to 1-day per week.
thanks for the idea, i'll put it into action from next week
