    Have you thought of trying calorie zig zagging, or calorie shifting?
    Its where you change the calires eaten each day up and down, by a couple of hundred, but by the end of the week you will have consumed the normal omount of calories you would in a week. But the shifting seems to kick start your metabolism.:)

    Firstly- unless you ate 7000+cals of junk food, you didn't put on 2lbs of fat! Your system is probably retaining fluid after your binge. Eat 'normally' for a few days and it'll come back off.

    I personally would stick at as high a cal intake as you can. If you find the losses are slowing (as they will), re-evaluate your BMR and daily expenditure and jig the numbers around based on what you 'should' be having. If it's around that number (1400-1500), then the best thing you can do is up your exercise levels or play around with the kind of food you're eating. The main causes of slowing losses is your body getting used to what you're doing/eating. So try to keep it varied and it'll help.
