    No way. You have to eat 3500 cal ABOVE maintenance to gain 1 lb. Obviously i wouldn't weight myself for a few days. Damn sodium causes the numbers to rise but you'll be fine

    Obviously don't make it a habit. In the long run it could screw you up if you decide to do this all the time

    Personally, I have a cheat MEAL (that I sub in and still meet my cutting calorie goal) once a week, and a "Cheat Day/Carb Refeed" (puts me about maintenance) once a month or so while cutting.

    Exactly, Cheat MEAL. It all depends on your goals. If ur cutting i wouldn't do it very often maybe once every 2 weeks or once a month for ur sanity. If ur bulking then once a week is fine

    Ah ok i see ur cutting..i'd keep it to a minimum. A refeed might be best for u if u are on a low carb diet

    You would probably feel like crap, but if you want to cheat then go for it. It's only going to hinder your progress.

    Just try it and see how your body reacts to the cheat. Some people can handle it better than others. If I cheat I can lose the weight (high salt intake) in a few days but for some people it isn't worth it because the lbs stay on for a bit as the sodium refuses to leave. Try it once every 2 weeks like i mentioned and notice how your body reacts. If you find that its worth it for your gains then do it once a month but it might help your metabolism and your sanity so maybe once a week wouldnt do any harm.
