Enough people know about my ED history that lately they've all been getting suspicious of my weight loss. So I've had to eat to their satisfaction for the last...almost a week.

 

Five days. 1800 cals/day. I gained six pounds. I am amazed and horrified.

 

Restricted one day and two of those pounds have already dropped off; I'm really hoping the rest follow suit. I'm betting a couple are for real though...

 

...what happens to you guys when you're forced to eat "normally" for a few days?

I'm sorry, dear!! The weight will be off before you know it, don't worry. To be honest, I make sure I NEVER weigh myself after I've had to eaten "normally", mainly because I never have the restriction to just eat a couple normal meals. I normally end up binging hard core and wouldn't dare to weigh myself after a binge. :/

If it's only a weekend I'll gain only 2lbs, but over a week I gain about the same amount you did.

Hope you get those extra lbs off!

I never gain weight in just a few days
It's the 'just a few days' every other week
I have a problem with telling people I can't go out of town, don't want to go out to eat, don't need to go to that wine tasting
It all adds up.
And there are lots of things I can't get out of, like eating after a funeral

4000 cal a day in 3 days, don't gain anything
4000 cal in 3 days twice a month for 2 months...fat as shit.

I'm pretty much the same as  you, it sucks and just inspires me to get it off much quicker...

Depends.

I have had it put on water weight, pull off bloat weight or send me into hypermetabolic mode where is start sweating and losing on ridiculously high calorie. My water weight gains though are about 5lbs or less.

OP, remember that your digestive track can hold 5-7 lbs of food at any given time, so some of it could be because of that!

 

If I eat normally, I usually gain 2-3 lbs right away and then it sort of levels off. But as soon as I start eating normally my binging tends to get out of hand, so I would gain a few more pounds before I actually got a hold of things enough to continue eating normally and not binge. I'm not even sure I've ever made it that far, I always end up purging at some point, binging/purging a few days, then going back to restricting.

I ate around 2000 calories for the past 2 weeks and it says I gained 10 pounds but it might be broken because I still fit in my clothes and everything

I decided to try eating 'normally' just for a couple of weeks to see what would happen. I was kinda hoping i would gain a little bit but then it would even out, but nope; i gained 10lbs in that time. I am disgusted, and going back to restricting by fasting today. My metabolism is clearly shot, and i know that the way to sort it out is to just continue eating normally and deal with the weight gain but no. Not happening.

I had to eat almost 700 calories for three days and only lost 2 pounds that week.  Family, of course.  Thanks.  Sorry people are on your case.
