    So someone asked me yesterday how often I have a "carb cheat day" (their words) while I am eating a Keto Diet. As a rule I don't do cheat days of any nature. I simply find ways to fit what I want to eat into my day. I have not been craving carbs (other than ice cream in this heat) overly much, so I am not sure why I would want to over eat my carbs on a day every so often. But he seemed to think it was an important part of the diet, and that I had to do it to refill glycogen stores or something... Does anyone have any thoughts or maybe can explain if this is true and why?

    The theory goes that you want to do a carb "re-feed" every once in a while to balance hormones (specifically leptin) and boost metabolism. Some people swear by it, others find it completely unnecessary. My brother is a bodybuilder and he uses a cyclical keto diet while he's cutting and has very good results... but he also trains like a beast so I think for him it's more important that he refills those glycogen stores.
