    You have to eat approx 3500 extra cals OVER your maintenance cals to put on approx 1lb.

    For example if my maintenance cals to keep me at the weight I am now are 2000cals I have to eat that 2000 plus approx 3500. Of course this is always approx as a rough guide. Weight gain can look more on the scales because of water retention..food in erm "transit.." glycogen etc...

    Hope this helps! x

    I don't know about this one.. One evening I figured it's fine to have just a little extra, since I was dying for something different than the soups, after nearly 3 weeks. So I had like maybe 5 spoons of yogurt and 2 slices of cheese instead of one of the soups. None of these were low fat, but not any carbs either. Next evening my constant decreasing weight suddenly leaped up 4 lbs?!!!? Scary experience, both for eating "extra" which I won't do anymore, but now I am terrified about what will happen when I will eat normal again!?

    Remember the first thing it will do is replenish your glycogen stores - it's the opposite of week 1. So I find I can really quickly put on 6-7lbs, which then just as quickly fall off again the minute I'm back on plan - I think glycogen takes about 3 times it's weight in water to store it, so it's not suddenly a whole lot of fat you've gained, but it is a shock on the scales! Just try and get straight back on track, if you can, and you should get a repeat of week 1 where it suddenly goes again. Good luck

    I'm the opposite, I face the music, to know how bad it was, and then I get to 'lose' again, albeit relosing the same bit. Good luck though, I find the difficult bit is getting back strictly on track after deviations. Hope all going well. xx

    ive had 5 days off of the pan as took a group of children with disabilities away on holiday and ate LOTS of BAD food. Its also my birthday sunday and my best friends birthday on Saturday, i can feel ive put weight on already but am planning on enjoying the weekend then getting straight back on it Monday. I think as long as you get straight back on track it will limit the damage, good luck :) xx
