What should I do if I overeat while I am trying to lose weight?

Manuel Villacorta
Nutrition & Dietetics
Because your body works on a weekly average -- not daily -- your weight will not change due to one day of overeating. So if you do stray from your weight loss program, follow these simple steps to get back on track.
  • Go back to your normal, healthy eating plan and start recording your foods again so you can easily get back on track.
  • You do not need to undereat the next day. If you undereat, it may backfire by causing you to overeat later due to hunger.
