It's mostly water. I gained about 12lbs one week then the next lost 10-11 of it. Remember, a pound of fat is 3500 cals.

you weigh yourself at the same time? that affects weight a lot.

most likely it was mostly water.

3500 cals == 1 lb.
but, you have to factor in however many calories it takes to maintain your body weight as well.

** quit worry'n. do you look 12 lbs fatter? **

note that fat is less dense. reworded: fat takes a lot of space per amt of weight. so 1lb of fat is more obvious than 1lb of water.

I think that is a **** load of water weight.I agree with syntekz''do u look 12 pounds fatter''.I think too many people judge themselves by the scales and not by the mirror!The mirror never lies.

.....that's why I look fat everytime I go to the gym! Then at clothing shops they use those mirrors that make you tall so you'll look good and buy their clothes.

remember your body needs 4 pounds of water to store 1 pound of carb. So, in your case; since, you gained 12 pounds from eating lots of carb, I would say about 9 pounds of your weight gain is water.

that's what i've heard 4 grams of water to store each gram of carbs

haha 4lbs?!

you're well mixed up breeze.

that would imply drinking like 5 pints of water.

Twizted seems to be closer but the precise value is more like 1g glycogen holds 4.32g. 4g is a close enough number though.

12 * 3500 == 42,000

Do you really think you ate an extra 42,000 calories in those days you cheated?

My statment stands. It's a 4:1 ratio wither it's Grams, pounds or ounces. The unit of measurement doesn't matter.

I wasn't saying that - if you look my answer says the same thing.

I was saying that 1 [whatever units] hold 4 [whatever units] of water and not vice versa as you said.
