calories intake vs weight gain question
hello to all,
I am wondering how many calories equal to 1lb. I read somewhere that 3500 calories = 1 lb, but I don't really think this applies to me. for instance, I ate way too much yesterday, about 2 000 calories more than what I should have eaten, and this moring my scale told me I had gained 3 pounds compared to yesterday...??? according to what I found on internet, I would have had to eat about 10 000 extra calories to gain that much weight in a day!
so is it different from one person to the other? is it really 3500 calories for 1 lb or am I mistaking? I know that your weight can vary from a day to the next, so usually I weight myself once a week, but I was curious this morning to know how many pounds I had gained.
