    What do you do after a non-paleo day or two?

    so, my birthday just passed and for really the frist time since going full paleo in november i had a pretty bad couple days.

    historically i have had what i call a non-paleo day (i dont like the word cheat because i am trying hard to to avoid the concept of this being a "diet") maybe once every six weeks where i indulge in a favorite, likely pizza.

    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.

    I usually do a fast the next day and skip breakfast/lunch and drink a bucket load of water.

    also make sure you get a decent night's sleep.

    I try to have a weekly meal plan made out each Sunday and if I stray from it I will usually try to figure out what caused me to stray and come up with better solutions for the next time I am in that or a similar situation, then I up my H20 consumption for a day or two to help flush the system and get back on the eating plan ASAP.

    Even if I feel poorly (bloating and slowed digestion), I just go back to normal. I don't want to deprive my body of any missed nutrients or fuel while it's struggling with the poor food choices I made.

    I don't eat the next day, at all. That usually gets rid of all the extra glycogen and bloatedness.

    Note, I've been cheating one night a week for the 5 weeks I've been in Italy. The good thing is that it is alcohol which gets burned up first and I walk to and from town which is 9km each way up steep hills.
