Ok I'm freaking out here. So I was doing well on my diet and then the hugest binge in the world came over me. Yesterday I woke up and I weighed 115( only 3 pounds from my goal weight for my small frame). I then took that as a cue to eat everything in arms reach. I had 5 slices of pizza, 2 bags of m&m's, a regular soda, a cup of peanuts,3 cookies and a bowl of hershey kisses. Disgusting I know....I dont know what happened. This morning I weigh 6 pounds more! is that possible? did I really sabotage myself that much?Or has my body not digested the food yet? I figured all I could gain was like 2 pounds, and I'm back on the my progress just ruined? please help!

How is it that anyone who has ever been on a diet or had a weight problem doesn't know how weight can go up or down? I've said it 1000x's to others and I find myself saying it once again. So this time I will say it loud : IT TAKES 3500 CALORIES ABOVE WHAT IT TAKES TO MAINTAIN YOUR CURRENT WEIGHT TO GAIN 1 POUND. That said, although you did pig out on junk yesterday you would have to eat like that for several days to gain 6 pounds. More likely its, water weight, or salt intake or the big one everyone seems to forget, your soon to be period. Stop freaking, its probably one of those things I mentioned.

I agree with the above posted but also feel your pain. I binged for 2 days this weekend and I am up 4. It will go away easier than if you gained real weight. Sometimes it's due to a change in type of food. For me, I've been dieting for 2 years and have awful metabolism. Don't sweat it just yet. Rehydrate and start over again, it'll be gone in a day or two!

My personal theory is that, when the body senses that it will be needing more room for some fat storage, it begins to "stretch" the cells by retaining water, sort of as a place-holder for fat storage. If you change your eating habits so that the body senses that it will no longer need that space, then it lets go of the water and that is the 10 pounds of water weight we often lose when we first start to diet. This is only my personal theory and my $.02, but it seems to explain some of the ups and downs on the scale when I change my eating habits... either for the better or for the worse.

I had the same problem. I weighed myself on Saturday morning and was actually 1 pound below my goal for Sunday. Then I had a huge Jack in the Box binge on Saturday night. Sunday morning I was 4 pounds heavier! I weighed myself again today and am still 3 pounds heavier than I was on Saturday. Even if my Saturday weight was low I know that I shouldn't be 4 pounds heavier!
So, just like you I'm trying to remind myself that it's probably water weight and I'll probably see a change the next few days. It's hard though. I'll definitely try to remember this little experience next time I get a junk food craving at 3:00am. So not worth it!

Sushi does this for me- ingesting all the soy sauce makes me "gain" 2 pounds almost immediately. 3 days later I am back down to where I was. Both sugar and salt seem to have huge effects on your body.

5 slices of pizza and the peanuts -- that screams water retention, plus there's the physical weight of the undigested food.

However, I don't agree with the others who treat all 6 lbs as temporary. I put on 7 lbs in 4 days, only two of which were small-scale bingey, and 5 of them decided to stick around for weeks. For many, the "binge" weight comes off within a few days - but that's not the case for everyone. So drink water and eat lots of fruit today, take a long walk to gently galvanize your digestive tract, and cross your fingers for a better rendezvous with the scale in the morning.

Did I gain 6 Pounds in 1 day

Excessive Carbs allow your body to retain WATER the day after you load up on them. The weight you see is water and should be gone and maybe a pound or two less within a day or two provided you went back to eating properly. You tricked your body into thinking food was once again abundant. Glycogen from the fast carbs you ingested transported water to your fat cells. It's that simple. You have also increased your metabolism once again allowing your RMR to burn calories at a faster rate.

Just realized the original post is from 2005!!! Well, I've typed my response already, so I might as well post it since I think it is still relevant.

It's funny how people focus on the "water retention" side of things. Oh, you ate salty foods, so your weight is up.

My guess is that you were dehydrated and empty (meaning small dinner the night before), so you weighed less on that particular day. Your body weight goes up AND down. Most people try to explain why the weight is up (ate out the night before, haven't digested, salty foods, water retention), but not why it goes down suddenly.

Yes, our weight goes up for "no" reason, but it also goes "down" for no reason. I don't count my weight to be at a certain level until I've seen it there three times.

Please realize that eating right is a life-long journey.

If you eat a boat load at a chinese restaurant or sushi, loaded with salt, sugar, dessert, yes! But it's not real weight. The scale will be different tomorrow. But ou didn't really lose 3 pounds either.

Hello. I went down the shore this weekend and gained 15 pounds in 2 days due to eating and drinking literally every hour. This happens to me all the time and it is gone by Thursday. Just work hard in the gym and drink a lot of water. Your gains are from the salt and water retention.

No, it's usually only salt filled foods that make the scale go up that much! I agree with the above poster.

When it's that time of the month, this can happen. But it goes away the next day.
