Actually if I stray off course or gain a few pounds, I always do the Atkins induction for a while, but with primal foods. So I don't go over 20g of carbs a day. It is immensely helpful for getting rid of cravings and water retention and it is almost impossible not to lose weight this way. And yes, you should always plan ahead although it does get easier after a while.
