Unhappy 34 carbs total today - can I skip my nightly snack?

Hi all, I am relatively new to this whole thing. I have been on low carb for about 2 1/2 weeks now and lost 8.5 lbs. Today I think I went a little overboard on eggplant and I had a protein bar too (I think my carb count for today could around 30 something).

My question is, will NOT having the snack tonight help me to stay in ketosis if I haven't already pushed myself out? I think the protein shake I drink for bedtime is 8 carbs but I know it has alot of protein too that I need. Please help -- I don't know what I should do!!

I`m not going to say yes or no to the snack, but to actually be careful with protein because it can kick you out of ketosis cause some converts to glucose, I donīt know the science behind it but if you read “The Ketogenic Diet”, “Why We Get Fat” or even watch some youtube videos of experts talking about it they say that too much protein can kick you out of ketosis... I donīt want to be mean but just tell you to be careful, cause I learned the hard way that ketogenic diet are high fat and only moderate protein diets!!!
Congrats on the loss so far and keep going!
