It won't. 20 chocolates will not have taken you over your weekly calorie requirements, probably not even over the daily total = no weight gain. It's just a hint slower weight loss, by a smidge.

I low carbed (Moseley style) for 6 weeks and then had a Pizza Hut incident. 'Yes please I will have a side order of carbs with my carbs.' I still had weight loss over the course of that week.

Just go back to what is working for you, and shrug it off. The key thing is not to fail in the overall diet because of a minor lapse in a regime.
