Question

For the past three weeks I have been binging a lot, pretty much daily due to a lot of factors, binging has practically become a coping mechanism. Along with this binging I have also been purging. What I would like to know however, is a few points to do with metabolism. I have been in 'starvation mode' (consumption of much less than 900 calories) for a very very long time. I would average about 500-600 calories every day with a rare 1000 day due to festivities or other such occasions. I knew my RMR would be very low now, but how do I find out how low?
If 3500 calories = 1 lb, then the amount of weight I have put on (around 13lbs over 2 weeks) would not have been possible, so I'm assuming that figure is for people who still have metabolism that runs. Someone told me my binging would give my metabolism a kick in the ass, but all it has given me is a very fat ass. My metabolism seems to not have changed at all.
If a person's metabolism has 'died', is it possible to 'revive' it - please excuse the phrase for lack of better words? And how do you 'revive' it without the use of diet pills and so forth?

EDIT:
Also, many people say that diet weight/sudden weight loss usually creeps back easily. Can this apply to the reverse? Can sudden weight gain that is not water weight be easily to lose as well? Or should I just dream on?

Thank you.
