    Will 2 days of cheating set me back a month

    Yesterday I had a cheat day and today I binged the same thing and I’m worried if it sets me back a long time I don’t want to restart myself I was 125 lbs now 135 and I binged about 13000 calories over and I’m worried if that will hurt me and can I also fast after cheating or will I risk also losing muscle too.

    You might wanna take a step back and figure out what you're doing wrong in your usual dietary habits to cause such a thing to happen.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    A cheat of 13000 means a week setback or so by math, but IRL you'll likely eat less and move more past that by nature... so you'll even out in ~4 days. Then you'll need to put yourself back into a chronic deficit again.

    Now, how to prevent this from happening again...

    – Check your deficit size, make it –500kcal.
    – Make sure your diet consists of foods you enjoy.
    – Keep track of micronutrients to avoid deficiencies.
    – Don't eliminate entire macros or go too low on them.
    – Avoid alcohol & trigger foods that make you go nuts.
    – Don't postcompensate cheats by being hard on yourself.

    All of the above points contribute to you cheating on your diet, so take a good look at them and try to figure out what's up with you and your regime.
