Have you ever eaten a huge meal and wondered how fast your body would gain weight from it? You've probably heard the saying, "A minute on the lips is a lifetime on the hips." How fast is the turn-around time for weight gain?
Weight Gain Occurs Over Time
For example, if you happen to splurge on a Saturday, you will not gain the extra weight on Sunday. You may step on the scale the very next day and it has gone up a few of pounds, but that is more than likely due to water retention or the weight of the meal before it has broken down. However, consistently eating more calories than you burn will cause permanent weight gain over time.
If you happen to splurge a little during the week, balance out your calories for the rest of the week by eating a little less.
