Don’t weigh yourself the next day! How many times have you had one to many pieces of dessert only to feel you must weigh yourself the next morning to see just how much damage you’ve done? And you probably saw the scale go up a pound or two, particularly if what you ate was high in sodium (such as many fast and packaged foods tend to be).
You need to relax if this happens and learn to tell yourself that you really did not gain 2 pounds of body fat over one meal. What has happened is your body is retaining extra water weight due to an increased number of carbohydrates and/or salt in your system. Given a day back on your usual diet and you will quickly see these pounds disappear.
