Default how long can cortisol mediated water retention last

so last week i thought i'd do an ERFL stint as i have a few weddings and stuff coming up early next year. I mean, i am no stranger to water retention and calorie deficits but this is something else entirely. After one day of 55k steps and 1000 calories.. i looked absolutely horrific. I mean, my girlfriend even commented on how different i looked. Its as if i spent 3 weeks away on vacation just eating. This was last Sunday.. It's as if every day after that i'm looking worse and worse.. i think this goes beyond a getting laid and having a drink kinda thing.. Surely it shouldn't last this long.. guys i kid you not.. it looks like i've put on 20lbs

lyle has a few articles on this. I think the severity of the water retention and the time it takes to dissipate varys from person to person. I know when i do something very strict like an RFL, ERFL.. or just a prolonged period of a harsh deficit.. i look like an absolute whale for a week or so. It eventually goes.. Maybe others can chime in?
