    I have a question... i know when you eat carbs after this diet you will gain a few pounds in water weight from not being in ketosis... but when do you gain fat? I know the average rule is 3500 calories more than what you need per week results in a pound of fat gain...

    but is this the same rule after being on exante? just thinking about birthday really... calorie wise i may be splashing out and its going to be on gateaux cake and things like that.. so a lot of sugar eating and alcohol... its only for the weekend as I want to enjoy it.

    but if i dont go over my 3500 calories i wont gain a pound/lb of fat? and will only have water weight gain until im back on track with exante.... true or false?

    I'm really not sure MissJam :S I know that is how it is "supposed" to work, but a lot of the time I can't make ryhme or reason of my weight gains :S
    Hopefully someone else can be more helpful :)

    Correct me if I'm wrong here, but - basically, when you come off Exante & start eating you can gain a few lbs (or more) of water-weight, yes. Now, if you eat 3500kcal (and that's a lot of calories) & do no exercise, yeah, chances are you will put on weight. But if you're planning on coming straight back to Exante, then I don't think you need to worry. The water weight will come off, and in time so will those extra lbs that you might have gained due to eating high calorie foods. Also, if you've been on Exante for a while, your stomach should have shrunk along with your appetite - you may find that you can't eat or drink as much as you used to, or want to. Hope this helps, & I hope you have a lovely birthday regardless. :) x

    I'd enjoy your birthday if I were you ;) I'd rather enjoy my birthday even if it means an extra week or so on the diet :)

    You really can't tell, you need to ask yourself how you would feel if you put on s couple of pounds, and if you'd still think it was worth it :) only you can decide :)

    Hope it goes well
