How Fast Will You Gain Weight After Stopping The Diet?
Hello … I want to ask, this month is really the month of fasting right … so I am on a low calorie diet … I haven’t even considered it … but I feel like my pants were tight yesterday … now This is because it’s been Eid 3 days I was a bit confused about eating it … it got messy … could it be that in those 3 days I gained more than 1kg of weight … and how quickly did I gain weight again after we stopped dieting … r nThank you .. r nWassalamualaikum wr.wb
Hello Desiii, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
How fast you gain weight depends on how much you eat (calories that enter your body) and the physical activity you do (calories that leave your body). Body weight will increase when there are calories that enter the body that you do not expend or do not use for metabolism. For example, if your calorie requirement in a day is 1800 calories. During these 3 days you eat up to 2800 calories. During those 3 days you accumulate an excess of 3000 calories. With this amount you will likely gain 0.3-0.4 kilograms in 3 days.
Weight gain after eating is also not considered an increase in body weight because there is weight from food, drink, and gas that enter when you eat. To determine weight gain, measurements should be taken in the morning at approximately the same time.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
