The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Help me fully understand water weight....

    My weight goes from 196 in the morning to as much as 206 in the evening. I understand a lot of this may be water weight but how exactly does water weight work? Do you only hold water when you are taking in too much sodium or are there other reasons? How do you avoid holding water?

    I spend about 40 minutes a night in an infrared sauna and I sweat like crazy but it never seems to have any impact on my weight (at least from weighing myself before and after a sauna session)

    I just figured if I could better understand waterweight and how/why it is stored I could better manage my weight.

    Thanks in advance!

    You hold water from sodium, carbs, and many other things. It's prolly food inside your body as well. You hold so much water for every gram of carbohydrate u eat and sodium makes you retain water. This is all natural though, just about everyone has the same problem so dont sweat it. The more water you drink the less you will hold, even as odd as that may sound.

    The best way to get rid of water is to drink as much of it as possible.
