I don't know what 1-5kg is, but I've gained 7 lbs in one day from eating wrong on a football party Sunday. We had pizzas (I ate more than half a pizza all by myself), chili cheese hotdogs, cheeseburgers, tater tots with ketchup, taco salads, tortilla chips with hot cheesy salsa, potato chips with french onion dip, a couple cheesecakes my friend made (one chocolate and one plain), a couple bags of m&ms with peanuts and with almonds, a couple bags of reeses pieces, I can't even remember the rest of the stuff we ate that day. But there was only 4 of us and I ate more that day than I usually eat in 2 weeks of 3 meals a day. Never again! hahaha Those are really bad foods with zillions of calories and almost no nutritional value.

I can pile on 3-4 lbs in a 3-day vacation weekend. That's without even trying - think Vegas with no alcohol, no buffets, and 60-80 mins of hard cardio every day in the hotel gym.

just think that each 3000 extra calories = 1 pound of extra weight (real weight, not waterweight). and in fact, when at binge eat, it's not that much. binge eaters can get in 5000-10000ccal when really on it. thus, count yourself - 5-10 pounds a week, easy?

I suppose it can also depend on the amount of sodium eaten... maybe that contributes to the additional water weight that can bump up weight gained to about 5lbs?

My friend gained 10 pounds on a floating buffet, I mean, a cruise in one week.

The sodium will bump up the weight gain, but as soon as you stop the bingeing and have a couple days of getting enough water, etc., that water weight will go away. So it is not "real" weight gain.

3500 extra calories is a gain of one pound. I can imagine eating that much extra one day, but I can't imagine doing it day after day. But then again, I've never actually been a "careless" eater - when I want to eat a TON, I try for healthy foods. When I want to eat crap, I try to eat just a little. So maybe I just don't understand true binge eating.
