You may gain some water weight in the beginning due to the increase in carbohydrates (for each gram of carbohydrate that is stored, a further 3g of water weight is also retained by the body).
No, but you definitely have to cut back on the amount of cardio you do, as it is counterproductive when it comes to increasing your metabolism.
The first week of the detox is always the greatest weight loss experienced for the majority of people.
The goal of reverse dieting is to slowly add as many calories as possible (mainly from carbohydrates) without gaining any weight or whilst gaining as little weight as possible. If you have been dieting on say 1400 calories for a while and have noticed no weight loss so decided to jump back up to maintenance calories (which would likely be around 2000 calories) you would most likely gain a significant amount of body fat. Everyones metabolism is different and your required calorie intake will vary person to person.
This will give your body a break from dieting and give your metabolism a chance to repair itself.
Most people who are reverse dieting cut cardio back to two days per week, usually HIIT (high intensity interval training) while strength training 3-6 days per week.
The slow increase of calories allows your body to adapt to the increases each week and prevent any significant fat gain. I am a Certified Personal Trainer who loves to help and encourage others to reach their goals. Reverse dieting aims to prevent this from happening by maximizing your metabolic capacity so that when you reach the maximum amount of calories you can eat without weight gain, you will start to lose fat far more efficiently.
