If you get off track, the most important thing for you to do is just get right back on. So if it seems to work for you to just pick up right where you left off or if you just start your low carb days all over again, it will be which ever works best for you.

The improtant thing is to get right back at it.

No worries; if you want you can do another low carb day, just not more than 3 days in a row... this is what Tom Venuto says about that:

After three days in a row on low carbohydrates, your glycogen levels will be almost completely depleted. If you were to continue on low carbohydrates for a fourth day, fifth day, or beyond, you would notice your energy and training intensity begin to
diminish. You would also notice that your muscles would “flatten out” and become softer. Your metabolic rate would begin to slow down and your thyroid gland would decrease its output of thyroid hormone. Basically, your diet would become less and less effective the longer you stayed on low carbohydrates beyond the three day period. Your body is so “smart,” it simply makes changes in physiology and metabolism to compensate for the prolonged lack of carbohydrates (which it interprets as starvation). That’s why you have to “shake things up” and keep your body off guard by throwing in a high carbohydrate day every fourth day."

... Keep in mind that you can also do 2:1 carb days as well... as long as you keep your body guessing, you will be ok... Keep records of your cycles and weight and measure yourself weekly so that you can keep track of your progress... that way you can adjust as needed. Please let know if this helps and how you are doing. ~ Dee

yesterday was the second day of my low carb day and I went over on my carbs (about 140). Tomorrow was supposed ot be my high carb day, so what should I do? Do I continue tomorrow as another low carb day and then make Wednesday my high carb day (close to 200g's)?
