Do you gain all the weight back on a low carb diet after falling off the wagon for one day?

I’ve been eating low carb for about 3 weeks and I love it, but I ate 2 bowls of cereal today will all the weight come back after one day? I also keep the calories and carbs low.

    If you just want to gain fat eat lots of carbs and be sedentary. If you want to gain muscle weight eat protein (accompanied by carbohydrates) and look up muscle building exercises which u can so have a look

    you cant lose or gain anything in one day. thats why usually ppl with diets have 1 cheat day where they eat anything they want.

    A low carb diet should never be a low calorie diet. Low calorie diets convert protein to fuel not leaving any for cellular needs. The first week is just water weight but fat is lost thereafter if you keep your calories high enough. Otherwise the body will strip it’s own lean tissue for nutrition. Although that may look great on a scale it will make it MUCH easier to accumulate fat in the future (since all that pesky lean tissue burning up calories will be gone). The body won’t release fat stores if you lower calories below what it needs. It will slow metabolism to compensate & store every spare ounce as fat. If you continue lowering calories, it will continue lowering the set point, til it can survive off nothing & store fat on anything. The body will only release it’s fat stores if it knows there is plenty of nutritious food.

    Carbs create LOTS of water storage, you gain water weight when eating carbs. The first week low carb weight loss is just drained water weight.

    You can also cheat easier than someone in glycolysis. IF you trigger insulin, all those carbs that would go to fat cells on someone in glycolysis instead fill up the empty glycogen stores & go to muscles for burning instead of fat cells. Which will slow weight loss but not create fat gain.

    There is no reason to ever go off a low carb way of eating, you slowly re introduce carbs to your way of eating and as long as you don’t exceed 9grams of carbs an hour (144 carbs a day) you won’t trigger insulin (the fat storage hormone) no matter the calories. Most of us do low carb most of the time & if we cheat & slip back into low carb the next day. I still cheat with sugar occasionally. It’s just not a regular part of my life (as it was preAtkins, 6 years ago, when I felt it controlled me & I had no control)

    The rungs to reintroduction of carbs in 5 gram units – all available to very active people in as little as 11 weeks. Make sure you do them in order & you can skip a rung if you do not intend to include it in your permanent way of eating, such as the alcohol rung.:
    * (minimum week 3 – maximum 25grams day) Acceptable vegetables, larger quantities
    * (minimum week 4 – maximum 30grams day) Add 5grams Fresh cheese
    * (minimum week 5 – maximum 35grams day) Add 5grams Nuts and seeds
    * (minimum week 6 – maximum 40grams day) Add 5grams Berries
    * (minimum week 7 – maximum 45grams day) Alcohol can be added if desired
    * (minimum week 8 – maximum 50grams day) Add 5grams Legumes
    * (minimum week 9 – maximum 55grams day) Add 5grams Other fruits
    * (minimum week10 – maximum 60grams day) Add 5grams Starchy vegetables
    * (minimum week11 – maximum 65grams day) Add 5grams Whole grains
    If you are continuing to lose or maintain (whichever is goal) in week 12 and beyond, you continue to add 5grams a day per week til you reach your personal carb level.

    Many people gain weight on high carb, then switch to low carb to lose weight & then are shocked when they return to high carb that they gain weight. (Isn’t insanity defined as doing the exact same thing, in the exact same way and expecting different results??) Many people can return to moderate carb levels but very few can really eat all they want of sugar and maintain weight or health.

    You will lose more body fat eating protein and fat (don’t eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast eat all you want but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter and half an avocado a day (you’ll need added potassium). Keep the calories high and the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Adding in green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

    Your body won’t release fat stores if you lower calories below what it needs. It will slow your metabolism to compensate and store every spare ounce as fat. If you continue lowering your calories, it will continue lowering that set point, til you can survive off nothing and store fat on anything. The body will only release it’s fat stores if it knows there is plenty of food.

    Eating carbs while trying to lose body fat is terribly inefficient. When in glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) you have to lower your calories (which slows your metabolism) and exercise heavily to deplete your glycogen stores before burning body fat.

    The core of the Atkins program is converting your body from glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) to ketosis (burning fat as fuel). You need to keep your fat levels at >65% of your calories, if you don’t your body will still remain in glycolysis by converting 58% of excess protein into glucose (via gluconeogenesis).

    It takes minimum of 3 days to convert your body to ketosis, (but only one bite to convert back to glycolysis) you will probably feel sluggish the first week but most people feel better than ever thereafter.

    Simple carbohydrates (sugar, flour, bread, cereal, pasta, potatoes, rice) triggers insulin, the fat storage hormone. The more protein you eat the mor
