I don't remember everything I ate that day after the big breakfast, but I know it was quite a bit: a quesadilla and a large carrot-zucchini muffin for lunch and a normal supper of some kind, along with wine. I had lunch at noon, right after my run, and was definitely hungry for it -- even after that 1,000-cal breakfast.
As I've mentioned before, I was born with a large appetite, weak fullness signals, and an iron stomach. So yeah, IE would surely result in weight gain for me.
