    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.

    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
