Calories consumed on carb ups

Hey all! This is admittedly an off-beat question, but I was curious. I am on day 2 of a carb-up (hooray!) and out of curiosity I have been keeping track of my cals consumed-yesterday was easily 7,000+ and today I’m sitting at around 5,500 (from 9am to 5pm). Bear in mind I was only 147 before the carb-up; lord only knows what I’m sitting at now as I’m basically storing a small ocean’s worth of water and can barely get off my couch. Anyone else have a problem w. insatiable appetites during carb-ups? I can do no carbs for days; however, as soon as I get a taste of carbs word gets out and buffet lines close early all over town.
