Is this possible?
Ok...this may sound like a stupid question, but I'd like to confirm something as it's one of those things I'm curious about.
Generally, my diet is pretty strict and follows a set pattern, however, every now and then I'll have a day where I just go crazy (everyone has to once in a while) and binge out on the craziest, fattest, sugary foods imaginable (it actually does me good, as it allows me to get the cravings out of my system). For example, the other day I managed to get through a Fru Key Lime pudding (one portion is 16g of sat fat alone, and they are tiny), a 8oz burger with coleslaw and 2 portions of chips, cheesy nachos and cheesy garlic bread (4 portions), 2 tubs of Ben and Jerry's Half Baked ice cream (yes...2 tubs), half a jar of crunchy, whole peanut butter, a tub of raisins, half a lemon meringue pie and 2 cans of coke - all in about 4-5 hours, no joke.
Now, obviously, that's A LOT of food. People have no idea how, for my weight, I put it all away (I tend to justify it by saying, although I'm on a cut and am at a ripped stage currently, I've kept the stomach capacity of when I'm in off season ;P haha), so, when I weigh myself in the next day, I have put on weight. That's understandable and fine. My binge days rarely happen, once in a blue moon, then it's back to my day to day routine where I get back on track and the added weight disappears again.
My question is, basically, where is that weight coming from? Is it purely water? Is it physically impossible to put on fat in a day? Is it based around your diet as a whole? The fat, bloated feeling is just due to stomach/water right?
I know it sounds like a silly question, but hey, you don't get if you don't ask.
