help! post contest weight gain.

Just finished up a contest where I did high sodium high fat high carb for day of contest and dehydrated myself . The day after I binged all day but I got back on eating healthy the day after. I'm thinking the 6 pound gain in a matter of 3 days must be water weight. Any tips for losing it fast.
