CHAPTER TEN

Sometimes I Go a Little Overboard

But I Get Right Back Up and Take Care of Business

I’m typically pretty good with sticking to meats and vegetables these days. If I crave pizza I’ll make my own low-carb pizza - which I love. I might make some low-carb macaroni and cheese. Maybe I’ll have sliced ham, chicken or turkey (cold cuts) on a couple of slices of my favorite low-carb bread. Of course, there’s protein shakes, ice cream, chips, and pretty much anything you can think of in low-carb form.

But sometimes I go a little overboard and have too much. This can happen any day of the week but it’s more likely to happen on the weekend. I might be out for dinner at a steakhouse and eat the bread that comes before the meal. Maybe I’ll have a bunch of croutons in my salad.

There are even rare occurrences of times I’m just not in the right place at the right time and end up eating a slice of pizza or a regular egg sandwich. Maybe some popcorn, chips or candy at the movies. It happens to the best of us. But I stick to my guns and get back on course the following day.

It seems the main point is to keep your body from remembering that it loves to be fueled by carbohydrates. If that’s really what’s going on then as long as you don’t over do it, you should be fine. As mentioned, every “body” responds differently. You need to figure out what works best for you. If you can cheat a lot and then get right back with the program without doing too much damage - great!

If I find myself out of Ketosis I usually only need a day to get back on board. I might need to go back to induction for a day or two - but once I’m back on board, all is well and I don’t gain anything back. If I do, it’s typically water and it doesn’t take long to lose it...

The point is, and it’s especially true once you’re firmly into the low carb way of life and you’re either not far from your goal - or there - that you can go off course once in awhile and it’s not a big deal. This is not one of those situations where you’re never going to eat pizza again. Or you’re never going to eat a donut again. Or you’re never going to have a bowl of cereal again. You will - but you won’t crave these things so you won’t over eat them like you used to (or currently do)...
