Ok, this may be a dumb question, but I am just going to ask it anyway.
If I ate 3500 extra calories to gain one pound, would it show up on the scale immediately the next day? Or would it show up a few days later?
The reason I asked this is b/c I went out to dinner last night. I had some bread, 2 glasses of wine, a few bites of hubbies dessert and I am up 2.8 pounds today. Now, I know some of that is water retention from the wine etc, as I know I did not eat enough calories to gain 2 pounds. So, that just got me thinking that if I really did sit down and consume 3500 extra calories would I see it the next morning on the scale?
