I've been into weight training for about 3 years now. I've made pretty good progress. When I first began, went from 220 to 125 .. yeah, big ass to a twig..
Rite now im 5'8 bout 140 or so.. lookin to kinda cut and tone up a little. .. my loose skin ****es me off cause it looks like fat and jiggles like it too !!
NEwayz, ill get to the quesiton.. Okay.. this has always been a weird thing with me. Everytime I increase my water intake in my diet, I tend to gain a lot more wieght in a short period of time!!. The weight will increase by maybe 3-5 pounds in 1/2 a week or so.. I hardly drink 2-4 liters like I used to anymore. I know water is essential for our bodies. And it makes sense that the more water youdrink, the less you retain.
But for some reason, I keep retaining water no matter what. I know my sodium levels aren't high. My kidneys also function well and my doctor doesnt really know why either. Sometimes I get cases of edema(swelling) in my legs do to the excess water.
I dont think anything is wrong with my diet either. I keep track of what I eat everyday. Its pretty healthy, I eat a lot of veggies, lean meats, fruits sometimes..
Total intake is about 2000 calories or so, with 160 grams protein, 300 carbs, .. the rest fat...
If anyone could help me I'd appreciate this alot.
