    so i went on a binge. i havent had junk food in so long and i had this massive craving and i gave in. i wouldnt consider it a failure but i went nuts at the super market. cookies. cake. chips. i been eating chinese food and pizza for two weeks now. but my weight dropped 5 lbs over two weeks. i was strict with my diet but could switching like this temporarily have done something? i dont know the exact details but isnt it beneficial to cheat or to go off course?

    Your weight loss could be attributed to muscle loss:hsughno: .

    I know when I took a period of time off from working out, I too lost weight but I'm sure it's because I loss muscle mass. Just my theory though.

    Weight loss = calories in < calories out. Even though you think you are eating a ton you are probably eating less than you regulary do especially since fast food is fattier it will make you fell full longer.

    I went to Vegas and thought I ate a ton but when I sat down and thought about it I really did not eat as much as I normally do hence why I was down 6 lbs when I got back.

    fat = 9cal/g. If you're eating fast food, that shit is calorie DENSE. If you're eating fast food, the dirt carbs are probably going to make you crave more crappy food sooner even though you just consumed a crapload of cals.

    Always been the opposite for me. I don't eat as much as I normally do if I were to eat fast food.
