Raise Calories Gradually?

I was on a 3500 calorie a day diet when I decided I wanted to cut.
So for the past two days I have taken in 1800 calories following Berardi’s get shredded diet.
However, now I’m not sure if this is the best time to cut so I decided to put it off.
Should I now gradually raise my calories again? or will I be okay with jumping back to 3500 since I was only on 1800/day for two days?

You cut intake two days. Just bump it back up you did no real damage/suppression of metabolism etc…

Next time I suggest not dropping your intake to near half to cut man thats insane asking for trouble try 500 to start and ride that as long as you can
