    i gained 2 lbs yesterday eating more or less healthy..


    im not worried about it at all im more concerned with the meaning behind it.

    This has been my meal log as many of you probably know.
    My log weight loss log...:D


    This is what I ate yesterday, and yesterday was also my off day so I didnt do any working out.



    • 2dcp
    • 2 leviathan

    • 1cupcoffee
    • 2 whole boiled eggs
    • spoon ful of rice

    • 4~ eggs, bacon toast.

    • chicken with chorizo, bout 1/2lb.
    • Turkey about another 1/2 lb

    • 2 dcp
    • 2 Fruit shake
    • turkey

    • chicken with chorizo.
    • turkey with mayo and relish, very little
    • watermelon 3 bowls

    • 1 dcp


    So I weighed myself on an empty stomach and after I worked out so I may have gained even more.

    Im wondering tho if this means, as one user suggested in my thread, that im not eating enough in my diet. So my muscles and stuff absorbed the protein they were drained of during the week.

    Or am I just insane and did I eat so damn much I gained weight. Since Im new to this kind of diet and sort out of my realm im just wondering what my bodies up to and what are some of these signals that its sending me mean.

    Thanks!

    Chorizo and bacon usually have a lot of salt, it might cause you to retain more water

    Thanks for the response.
    hmm....maybe, I do drink a ton of water, about 6- 10 bottles a day,and did eat quite a bit of chorizo. ill try to eat less salt today and weigh myself tomorrow to see what happens. Today during my workout I did sweat A TON, im taking dcp which enhances my sweating and did about 2.00 miles in 16~ minutes on the tread.

    Your weight goes up and down during the day. I put on at least 5lbs during the day and thats on 3000-4000cals

    also don't weigh yourself everyday

    I can literally weigh 6lbs more today than yesterday...its common. it depends on fluid and retention...also, a fruit shake? if it has real fruit then, as you know, there is quite a bit of water in fruit plus you took in sodium from food.

    Yea my wife wanted to make fruit smoothies. All real fruit, watermelon<---
    which was probably the culprit.

    Yeah i always wake up, take a piss, then weigh myself. Avoids some of the fluctuation at least.

    Don't sweat it man. Assuming you're in a caloric deficit, I doubt you gained any fat at all, let alone 2lbs in a day. Water fluctuation, food in your digestive tract, etc. Don't drive yourself crazy looking 24hr results, keep pounding away.

    I put on 6lbs in 3 hours just from drinking a ton of water. Like everyone else says, don't worry about it. Weigh yourself weekly, not daily.

    Just as a point of reference, at 265, my weight fluctuates around 6-12 lbs a day (drink a ton of water). I think my biggest fluctuation to date was on the anabolic diet, woke up Friday at 271 lbs, had a few low carb meals, depletion workout, then a ton of carbs. When I went to bed, I was 291 lbs. Of course, the weight dropped off during the week, but it would easily be a 10-15lbs gained/lost each week, usually ending about 1-3 lbs lower in comparison to last week.
