    ^ As the guys above have said, keep it simple.

    Losing weight is about the broad strokes, not about precision. Just set a daily calorie target and don't exceed it. Do this for 2 weeks, weighing...

    Personally, 1 night doesn't affect me much unless it's high volume training (which it seldom is these days). A few nights on the trot and it does start to take its toll though...
