how long does it take till you gain the weight from a binge

i've noticed, in the past, that the gain from a couple weeks bad eating kind of creeps up on you. it's not just an instant gain, but rather days/weeks later i'm still putting on the lbs even though i am back on track.

so, here's the question: does anyone know how long the turn-around time for weight gain is? i know the formula - eating more cals than you burn = gaining weight -- but i want to know how long it takes to gain that weight.

anyone else wondering this? anyone know the answer?

It seems that it takes 48 to 72 hours for the weight to show up on my scale after a day of eating junk food. But once I am back on track I don't keep gainng. I think that everyone gains and loses at different rates.

I see it instantly on the scale. It takes me about a week to undo one binge/one day of bad eating.
