I went off the diet – do I need to change my supplementation? 

The simplest and most direct answer: no. You don’t need to change your supplementation after going off the diet.

Of course, if it is a day when you overdid it, it is recommended that you do not supplement. Only on that day. This helps in the digestion of food.

Although Whey Protein is a fast digesting supplement, it is advisable that you wait for the next day. The best thing to do is to wait until your body finds a healthy state again. 

But there is no need to change supplementation or take any other action. Discontinue consumption for one day, wait until digestion is stabilized, and then return to the diet as normal.

Restrictive diets that are impossible to maintain in the long term

Trendy diets that suggest large calorie reduction or the removal of food groups from the menu may even help you lose a lot of weight in a first moment. However, they are difficult to keep in the long term and do not promote a definite change of habits.

Then, when the diet is interrupted, the weight tends to come back.
