Just wondering after a binge when would it show on the scales?
The next day, same week or next week?

Same week I think....2-3 days with me

Depends how much tho and what efforts you make to claw it back

Ah! The lag and the whoosh!

My 'lag' is about 3 days. Not so sure about the 'whoosh' (the parallel phenomenon when you don't seem to have been reducing intake much, then suddenly a few lbs just fall away, as some sort of delayed cumulative effect).

I think the important thing is that you recognise how it happens for you. So having a blow out weekend with friends might not show on the scales on Monday, but that doesn't mean you've got away with it!
