Gaining weight...To Quickly?

Hey guys

Is it possible to gain weight back too quickly?
Im starting to panic
Its been only 4 days and I've gained already 5 pounds.
Its mostly because the diet I've been placed on which is anywhere from 3000-4000 calories a day but this rapid weight gain is only making me want to go back to my old ways. Could part of this weight gain be a result of water retention. Has anyone else suffered rapid weight gain like this?
Help

Re: Gaining weight...To Quickly?

A lot of the weight gain will be water retention and (not to be gross) but food retention- in that you're probably all plugged up and constipated and literally have a lot of the food still in you. The weight gain will definately slow down soon enough once your body readjusts. However I hope you didnt just jump into this diet overnight, btu rather you slowly added calroies to your day over a period of time like a week-2 wks. If you jump into it too fast, your body will have trouble readjusting and that's nto healthy either. Keep goign at it and you'll be on the right track! Awesome job so far!
