If I skip my off day will I lose more weight?

Ashley Koff, RD, says the plan does not advise you to skip your off day. Doing so may cause the weight to creep back on in a few weeks and the goal of this plan is to keep it off for good. This plan is designed to allow you to take this day for long-term weight-loss results.

How do I get back on track after my off day?

It may take a day for you to bounce back, says Tia Brown, licensed therapist and life coach. You may feel bloated or find that you’re holding a little extra water from your splurge foods, but your focus should be on how you feel in that moment. This will help ramp up your metabolism, which is how the plan works.
