    Nothing out of the ordinary. I go back into my routine, as if nothing had happened. You're probably bummed because, despite not referring to it as a "cheat" day, you're considering it some kind of failure. I can't really give any advice on how not to feel that way, other than "don't." It isn't a dead end where you have to turn around and go back, it's a detour that just takes you along the scenic route.

    The last time I felt crappy from eating I had done a carb refeed you were supposed to eat on top of the other food you had already eaten. I felt almost nauseated that night, then wasn't hungry the next day. I had a snack at dinner and decided that WOE wasn't for me.

    Slaughter a lamb in front of a grok idol then eat it raw. The lamb not the idol.

    Relax, you won't go to wheat hell.

    After a particularly bad day, i.e., plate of gluten free spaghetti (usually rice, quinoa, corn pasta mixes), I will fast for the next day until dinner and eat a small dinner. Stuff like a plate of spaghetti can seriously make me feel full for 2 days.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

    Physically: nothing drastic. 3 days out of the 1000s remaining is nothing. I might accommodate the diminished appetite by reducing portions slightly or a leisurely walk/bikeride.

    Mentally: I strongly advise against the "crime and punishment" head trip. IMO any sort of recovery/atonement mechanism only makes us more vulnerable to future misbehavior. Better to live with our choices 100% of the time.

    I just get back in the boat. Move on, and tell myself it's the past.

    Make a plan to never eat wheat again. That will help a lot.

    Plunging into Whole 30 in a panic is likely to produce useful results, as well.

    Sadly, i just had 3 bad pretty bad days in the last five. I got on the scale and was flabergasted with a ridiculous gain, but realize a lot of it will come back out quick, body holding onto excess water from high salt intake, carbs sticking around etc.

    What do you guys do if you fall off? I know some of you seldom do, but i am sitting here a bit on the bummed side and considering an IF for the rest of the morning/afternoon and chugging some water.
    Happy Birthday.

    I go back to eating primally as if nothing had happened, and do it up right with a really delicious meal. Steak! Butter! Bacon! Avocado! Primal should feel just as indulgent as birthday cake.
    *My obligatory intro

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    Yesterday i wound up eating a normal lunch (italian sausage with peppers and onions) and wasnt hungry at dinner so i just had an egg or two. i weighed myself this morning, which i do almost every morning. Saturday morning i was 265. 273 this morning. ouch.

    i am basically doing what most of you said. Just back to it and leaving it in the past. it is a little hard for me since i am a scale watcher to know that itll be a week or two before i get back to where i was. anyway, cheers guys thanks for the help
