Why would you need to?

Eg if your range is 1200-1550 and you blew it over by eating 1800 for two days, then you have 500 extra calories over those two days to account for.

Eat at 1300 for 3 days.

Over the five days, you've eaten a total of 7,500 calories, or 1500 a day, which is in your range.

For the healthy adult it is fine to be under your SP calorie range by 100-200 for a few days. And you may not even need to go that low. Just eat at the lower end of your SP calorie range.

my uneducated answer is yes.

There are days when I just have no appetite, so I'm a bit under. And days when I seem to be ravenous all day, so I'm a bit over. But it all evens out.

and like you said, you aren't talking about anything drastic

If I have been over my calorie range for a few days in a week, is it ever ok to go a bit under for a day as long as my weekly average is where it should be? I'm talking maybe 100-200 calories under, nothing drastic.
