Well, after 2 months solid cutting, I had a week off, ate some bad ****, and it seems put on a about 5lbs?! Do you reckon some of this may be water? I really wanna be ripped by the end of august. I need emergency suggestions to get the fat off, fast! I was eating 2600kcals on lift days, and 2300 on off days, with around 200grams of protein everyday. My maintenance was 3000, but that was taken from average weights and calories, and may not be accurate.
what's your routine look like?
are you doing any HIIT?
take a look at this thread:

Probably just mostly water weight. Just get back on the routine and stick to it as well as you can.
7 days of eating 3000 calories is 21000 calories in a week. That's enough to put on an even 6 pounds... provided your maintenance was 0 calories a day (because you're undead or something).
I blame water weight.

And, I guess if you need to lose those calories, you'll need to adjust the diet or add in some cardio
Bench - 270x5
Squat - 350x5
Did you eat lots of carbs during your binge? If so, than you probably gained a LOT of water weight.
I did actually, lots of pizza.Originally Posted by RedSpikeyThing
