    Hi, not sure how SW works but general rule is that if you eat way below your bmr for an extended period of time, your body goes into starvation mode and weight loss actually decreases with your body responding by using lean mass ie muscle) as a fuel.

    However, an increased deficit over a couple of days shouldn't pose a problem unless your "normal" days also have huge deficits.
