Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can answer it..
I say the following in brotherly love:.
Get over and quit acting like a little girl. You screwed up...so what!? Pick yourself up by the bootstraps and move on. How long will it take to undo what you did? That is crappy thinking because most people who use that line of thinking will then take it to the next step which is: "oh, hmm, well if it takes me 3 days to re-lose what I just gained by screwing up, I might as well have another meal off and start back in the morning/afternoon/evening/next week/never.".
So, my best advice is what Singing_Cowboy put in a kind way: GET THE HELL OVER IT AND MOVE ON BEFORE YOU TALK YOURSELF INTO ANOTHER PLATE OF CRAP..
By the way, was the plate of crap worth all the guilt you're feeling right now? I didn't think so. This is the Men's Room...you did the right thing by owning up to it. Now do the MANLY thing by moving on. We'll be here to support you. And if you want some coddling, go here:.
Or even better, go here:.
Or best yet, stay here, take it like a man, and show us what you've got soldier! Make us proud!..
You Nailed it Haggis...and if I might add....this is the Mens Room.....
Two 100% days and your body will be back on track. The key to this program is stringing as many 100% days together as you can....We all fall off the horse, the good ones get right back on and ride harder...
Whatever it takes brother, learn and move on. You MUST stick to the plan. You're in the military, you can do anything for a month. One month on the plan and it will become second nature to you..
Next time you screw up (and there probably will be a next time). Get back on the track right away. Don't wait until next Monday or tomorrow or whatever. No excuses in this room..
No glitter here bro. Man up and get on the plan...
Roger that! I appreciate all info from everyone and thanks for the kick in the ass. It's exactly what I needed..
You got it, Mack! Listen to John - go right back immediately and don't be dismayed by the scale. Been there, done that. More than once or even twice. Learned a few things along the way. A deviation can cause a swing in water/crap retention that will take a couple days to clear out. If you Man Up and go back 100%, you'll be back on track with barely a quiver to your ticker.
The day following your indulgence you'll note that you've probably gained some weight. This is retained water due to the sodium found in real food. You'll go back to losing immediately since you're back in a calorie deficit. You probably didn't do as much damage as you thought..
It's probably not a good idea to cheat at all for the first few months. Let your body adjust to modest levels of food and glycemic levels. This will curb your cravings and reduce your gluttony for when you do go off-plan..
I've been on (this time) only a few days more than you and the cravings are nonexistent. I actually forget to eat and have to force my meals down sometimes. Maybe around August I'll go out for a nice (and sensible) meal...
What Haggis said!.
Now go drink some more water!..
