I don't get the question? In terms of carbohydrate refeeds?

Mike,
High fat (pizza, wings etc.) carb refeeds tend to be disastrous. Someone who puts down 10k worth of kcals divided between high carb and high fat in a day will seriously derail their goals.

If someone is putting down 10k of calories in one day....they have some other deep issues. Also one must have lower calories days to counter act a higher day. It's still all a numbers game to make it all work....but the main lesson being with fat loss in general....if one way isn't working, then time to change up the numbers somehow.

I agree. I also think it's easy to let calories sneak up on you (it happens to me all the time) when there's high fat, high carb, decent protein foods that tend to be "night out" foods. Sushi fits this one and is my vice, but so does pizza, beer, hotwings (another of my vices), burgers, ice cream etc.

I use the rule of thumb that protein is not a priority on higher carb days....and fat should be kept in check. Of course I don't count calories either...and been known to put down a whole pizza without flinching....and still be hungry.

Yeah, I end up doing this at the sushi bar. The sodium load tends to be the worst part about it.

Default No magic pill

I do not think that there is a magic pill or formula for dropping those unwanted pounds. I myself have been overweight, I tried everything from weighltloss pill to dieting but nothing really work for me. Heard from my friend Christopher Guerriero that we are fat because of Candida Albicans which is apparently responsible why we have cellulite and why it is hard for us to lose weight.

What?

Do you know what candida albicans is? And why it should have NOTHING to do with being overweight?
