where can I find that info.? All I can find about cheat days is o have a normal breakfast and then lots of h2o+grapefruit juice. Never saw anything about 20% more, and in the book I saw lots to the contrary.
Actually I didn't even think we had to count calories... Seems odd that Tim would go out of his way to bash calories for an entire chapter, and then use them in the next.
Also, in regard to the original post:
Page 84 of the book says that it is common for 120 lb. woman to gain 8 pounds in water during a binge. Us guys can see up to 20 pounds of water weight.
And chances are, it is water weight. Gaining 6 pounds of fat in a day is like being the superman of fat gain. You WOULD know if you just gained 6 pounds of fat because your clothes would be terribly tight.
