So, I tried drinking a whole gallon of water for 4 days straight to try and flush out a little bit of the heavy food I ate last weekend while on a mini trip. I ate excellent, worked out like a madman and then on Tuesday last week I weighed in and had GAINED 3 lbs.

So I freaked out a bit, ate great and worked out harder and on Friday I gained another 4 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I was like about to rip my hair out! Talked to some trainers at the gym and they said, your body feels is dehydrated and wants to retain your water, but its totally ok.

I weighed in yesterday Sunday and lost all that 7lbs plus an additional 2 for a 9 lb loss over 2 days time. Now tell me the darn body isnt an amazing thing?!?! Afterall, I figure a gallon of water weighs like 8lbs.

Does drinking that much water really affect your scale weight? Anyone else, just drink normally like for a few days before they weigh in? CRAZY.

Geesh, I can lose (or gain) 3lbs overnight from water consumption. I think it's all related to your salt intake. Did you perhaps drinking Gatorade or some other sports drink as well, eating olives or other salty food?

I have noticed that when I do strenuous exercise like doing a lot of pushups, weight training etc that my weight will go up temporarily- it was explained to me by a fitness coach at the gym that when you work your muscles they retain some water hence the reason that you need to have a day of rest. That way you cane get rid of excess water weight and your calorie accountant can do his job and post the results of all your hard work Smile
The secret to success is to WORK HARD, and NEVER, EVER give up!

I don't know if you watch the Biggest Loser... but the contestants have been doing that for years. If they have immunity for a week they drink tons of water so they have a bad weigh in... but the following week they'll have a major loss and win that week.

The day before a weigh in I don't go crazy with my water. I just drink a normal amount.
