We’ll look at what a Refeed day does for your results, why its not a cheat day, and give you a recipe for Autumn-Approved brownies!
While it’s not a cheat day – it’s nice to know you can have a treat like a cookie or brownie!!
Eating on 80 Day Obsession’s Refeed Day
Here’s a few examples of what challengers enjoyed on Refeed Day!
What does a 80 Day Obsession Refeed Day Do?
This day allows you to increase your calories and eat fast-absorbing carbs (what we typically crave!) to replenish our glycogen stores.
By having a Refeed day, you:
- bump up your energy
- improve performance
- get better results
What do you eat on Refeed Day?
Along with your additional carbs, you’ll eat your normal containers outlined in your timed nutrition.
When you order the 80 Day Obsession, you’ll have a full list of foods and recipes to pick from! You can find it in your nutrition guide & dessert recipes are online under Fixate on Beachbody on Demand.

Cheat Day vs Refeed Day?
A cheat day to us means eating everything and anything we want. This type of day may help you mentally, but it’s not going to help you have more energy or better results.
The 80 Day Obsession Refeed day is developed to make your carbs (even the fun ones!) work for you today!
How many Refeed Days are there in 80 Day Obsession?
Don’t get attached to these carb-filled days! You only get 4 of them the entire 80 days, but it’s so worth it!
You first one is in phase 2, and then you get them every 2 weeks in phase 2 and 3. They are before Leg day!
What Days are Refeed Days?
Your specific Refeed Days on the 80 Day Obsession are Days 35, 47, 58, and 70.
These have been adapted from Fixate and are not the exact recipe.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 (16-oz.) can chickpeas or garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- 1 pinch sea salt
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
How to Make:
As you gather your ingredients, turn the oven to 350° F and spray a 9×9 with canola oil. Then blend the beans, butter, eggs, syrup, vanilla, cocoa, baking power and salt in a mixer until smooth. Add in your chocolate chips and bake for 24-27 minutes. Once they cool, cut them into squares (4 rows each way).
Another option would be our Avocado Brownies!

I am about to start 80 day obsession. I noticed that the chickpea brownies are 2nd phase/Refeed day. But can I actually eat them in first phase? States they are only one yellow container. I am so confused
You could as long as you have room for them in your daily containers. :) Autumn will always say the foods at the top of the food list are the best to choose, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t have the brownie here and there….it just means a sweet potato would be a great choice whereas the brownie is an okay to good choice. Does that make sense??
The brownie recipe is featured on our Refeed Day post just to give you a fun new treat if you wanted to indulge without going full on cheat-meal-mode. Does that help? Do you also have a coach that can help you as you get started? If not, we’d love to work with you!
