So, this might be a long story so I'll try to make it as short as possible. This is more of a background and the question is at the bottom if you want to skip it.
When I started to go into a "cut" (if you could call it that, even) in late May, I was 220 lbs. All I really ate was wheat (frosted wheaties for breakfast, turkey on wheat for lunch, foot long turkey on wheat from subway for dinner, and something like popcorn or wheaties for a bedtime snack), and that is all I'd eat. I did that until probably late October, and pounds dropped fast. I also did a good deal of HIIT (worked my way from 4 minutes per session and doing a session every 2 days to 9 or 10 minutes per session every 2 days). I kept highdrated and kept drinking lots of milk (3 or so avg. bottles a day of water and 1-2 glasses of milk before bed and maybe 2-3 in the time span of the day). Now I've moved into a new house and my workout is a bit restricted. I haven't been eating any of that, and I've been cut down on water (by choice I guess. I just don't drink a lot anymore. I've went around 2 days without any form of drink). I haven't been doing HIIT but I've been lifting weights alot. I don't eat alot either (anymore), but in the past few days I have been pigging out, and I'm scared to gain weight back because, chances are, I'll probably go on a huge cut again, and I don't want to. I'd rather lose it gradually (maybe 5 pounds a month to get ready for summer, not 10-20 a month like I did). Just to give you an idea of what I've been choking down:
Saturday my girlfriend and her family took me to Olive Garden:
2 Salads (not a large amount though)
4-5 Bread Sticks
That's all I ate for the whole day, and I was completely stuffed the whole day.
1.5 cups of deep fried chicken fingers
1 cup of deep fried mozerella sticks
1 cup of ice cream
2 slices of ham
1 cup of hershey's chocolate syrup (some mixed with milk, otherwise I turned the bottle up, hehe)
1 cup hot chocolate
1 peanut and butter jelly sammich on wheat
2.5 cups of ice cream
2 slices of ham
ham (2-3 slices) and cheese sammich on wheat
1 cup of hershey's chocolate syrup (mixed with ice cream or poured down my mouth)
2 small bags of buttered popcorn (about 1/4 the size of a normal bag)
I measured my weight Monday morning, and I didn't show a gain of any weight (about 163-165), and I'm wondering... When you get skinnier, does your matabolism increase, so it makes it harder to gain weight? Because before I pigged out I ate just enough to get by, and I was still losing weight (not alot, maybe 1-2 pounds every few days, but I'd gain them back).
