Its going to take you 3-5 days to get back into ketosis so I would just start phase 3 now. There is a chance that you will lose in phase 3 but you may also have a gain, just depends on how your body reacts to putting the carbs back into your body.

I would not worry about the cheat at all. Remember you are NOT getting back all your glycogen reserves back just with one cheat. I bet you will be back in ketosis within 24 to 36 hours. phase 2 and one are not very different, the only purpose of phase 2 is so that your body gets used to having solid "real" protein for lunch. I personally would continue with phase 2 and not change anything.

As far as loosing in phase 3: yes, I went into phase 3 at 137 and lost another 12...note: I started working out heavily as soon as I was able to have the breakfast that you can have in phase 3.

wish I remembered how long I did phase 3, we are talking 2 years ago. Both actually, I had started with weight training in phase 2, twice a week with a trainer then I started running and doing boot camp classes in phase 3. I remember in november of 2010 I was actually at 123. My body didn't like that at all and it seemed that 125 to 127 was where I was happy and looked the healthiest.

as you can see I am re booting now to get rid of 10 pounds I had gained by being bad for a few months. my coach said do phase 3 for minimum of one week then start having carbs for dinner; based on that start the phase 3 a week before 29th then you can have a little bit of carb and freedom when you are on holidays.

From what I have read, it is important to be on Phase 3 for 2 weeks. You no longer have that amount of time so it is important to get started on Phase 3 right away.

I too am leaving for vacation next week and so my coach put me on P2 for just one week and I started P3 two days ago. She said they wanted me on each of the two phases for the same length of time. A little shorter than what is usually suggested, but I want to be able to be on maintenance when we leave. I have still been losing a few lbs as I have been on P2 and it looks like maybe still a little more according to my scale this morning. I have a weigh in this morning and look forward to what their scale says. This is such an awesome program!
