Big gain?

It depends how many carbs you eat in the first couple of weeks. If you have been following a low carb diet your glycogen stores will be depleted.That's why you initally lose a lot of weight in the first week on a VLCD or low carb diet. Once you start to introduce carbs your liver will store a mixture of glycogen and water. Any weight you "gain" (as long as you're in negative energy balance) will only be water weight and not fat.
