I ate my first day of 3000 calories yesterday.
The scales say I have gained 2-3 pounds...?
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?? I'm so scared.
Reason: Moved to H&S Forum -- WG is not a recovery forum; please read the stickied "before you post in the weight gain forum" thread.
A lot of food means adding some weights too, and you are now bloated (on top of regular daily weight fluctuation). Drink green tea, eat clean the next few days and wait a day or 2.
Seriously though it's just bc you have a lot of food sitting in your stomach, and you're probably retaining a ton of water. I doubt you gained any real weight at all.
My first week of recovery I prolly gained 10lbs in less than a week! Im pretty sure it was mostly water though cause I felt a whole lot better than I had in months. I was severely dehydrated and having acute renal failure though.
