Whatupwitdat? Gaining weight despite exercising and eating clean

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Even though i did 240 minutes of cardio and ate at the bottom of my recommended range this week, I gained 2.5 lbs! emoticon

Has anyone else ever had this experience?

    I don't really have anything to add from the other comments. Just stick with it and see what happens. The body can be a funny thing when it comes to weight loss

    Many POSSIBLE reasons for this. Don't panic, yet.

    Salt intake. Muscle gain from weights, etc. "Dump" lag. ;-) ...

    I recommend moving averages on weight. Takes a lot of the drama out of the process.

    I too have been working hard and not seen results (gained 2lbs since my last weigh-in). I just remind myself the number on the scale doesn't tell the whole story.
    I also focus on non-weight related victories, like gaining strength (ie I can lift 215 lbs on my leg press, when I started I could only lift 150) or fitting into my clothes better.
    Nobody sees the scale but me, I'd rather know I'm making healthy choices and see results everyone can see (like lost inches)
