The One and water weight
I'm on day 5 of my "the one" cycle @3caps/day and I am up 3 lbs. However, I definitely noticed that at least half of it has to be water. I drink around a gallon a day and I don't take creatine. Anyway, the reason why I know this is because I am peeing WAY less. I drink a quart before work, during lunch, pre/during workout, and post-workout/ before bed. I barely have to piss when I wake up and I definitely feel more bloated.
I just think that the reported gains may be a little unrealistic, as those less familiar with their bodies (or urination schedules) may not even notice this.
Other reasons: I am on a cut and my abs are less visible. Cardio has gotten a little harder as I feel like I am going to puke during my sprints.
I know it's a little early in the cycle, and this could change, but there's no way these are lean pounds. Most of the logs I've read didn't seem to mention holding water. Thoughts?

I drank a gallon or more a day and pissed non stop. Never felt bloated from water intake.

Your body could be holding onto water for dietary reasons. Either you're not drinking enough water for your exercise level, or having high carbohydrates (for every gram of carbohydrate your body stores 3g of water) or too much sodium, or not eating enough; it could be many factors.

As long as I eat clean I definitely do not retain water on this stuff. When I decide to cheat and have some sort of sugary snack, then I feel bloated. Otherwise I feel like I spend half my day in the restroom sometimes I have to piss so frequently.
As for strength gains, I started noticing gains towards the end of the second week. From there it really started to climb.
