How many calories would someone have to eat to gain a pound?

How many extra calories would someone have to eat to gain weight? I ate about 100 extra calories today, is that going to effect my weight?

    3500 cals equals a pound. You will have to eat 3500 more cals than what you burn off for that day

    none of above are correct: its all about your metabolism.. for some people gaining a pound is simple by a 3 burgers but others it may be eating double the usual intake

    Something like 3,000 or more.

    It takes 3,500 calories to equal one pound of body weight.

    3,200 calories. however, you can’t just eat 3,200 calories and expect to gain a pound. the way it works is that you have to consume 3,200 more calories than your body uses. and it is burning calories all the time. the less activity you do the less calories you burn. also, if you have a high metabolism, you use more calories than a person with a low metabolism. it is an individual thing. the only constant is that 1 lb of fat=3,200 calories
