Over/Under Eating?

If you go over your caloric intake one day, should you try to go under by the same amount the following day? I'm working out regularly, but still getting the hang of staying within my calorie range.

Yes, you can compensate from day to day. The only exception is if you overindulge at an event one day, you shouldn't starve yourself the next day!

The point is, if it's a couple hundred over one day, you can safely go a couple hundred under the next.
