    Guys great keto podcasts, I just finished watching them and I was hopping you could clear up my confusion. Whats the point of carbing up for the fully adapted keto person? When your adapted to keto your glycogen levels are already full. Other cons that I see is it will take you out of keto and one will have to take time getting back into it, The only positive that I see it may help you be more metabolic flexible. Am I missing something?

      In all honesty the reason for the carb ups are to keep people metabolically flexible as you stated, but also to keep them from binge eating carbs when they are done on the keto set up. Most people will have a very large mental rebound and cheat heavily after they are done if they arent incorporating carbs into the diet every 1-2 weeks on a refeed. This allows for people to have something to look forward to instead of trying to force such a strict plan on themselves without eating carbs. Almost all of us are going to eat carbs at some point, I would rather schedule them than have someone cheat on the diet and eat them.

      Great question Marcin, thanks for asking!
