    I would say that 2lbs. a week is about the most you need to lose in a week. Eating excess calories was probably more the culprit than coming off the ECA stack. I doubt you gained back 5lbs in a week unless you were consuming large amounts of calories. Some of this weight could be water and glycogen if you started eating more carbs during your week off.
