What is with this crazy weight fluctuation everyday??

I woke up and weighed 170

I've had a fiber bar, two bananas, a tablespoon of peanut butter, a tuna sandwich, two bottles of water and a glass of juice

Now i'm 175

OK, so that MIGHT be 5 lbs of food, but i've also had four bowel movements.

Whaaaaaaaaaat the hell.

  • you always weigh less in the morning..... when i was thin i used to weigh myself every day and i would always weigh about 5lb. more by the end of the day than in the beginning.

  • Don't weigh yourself multiple times a day, or even every day. Once a week is plenty, at the same time and on the same day, to get an accurate idea of where you're heading. Everybody's weight fluctuates like that from day to day, and it has nothing to do with how much you eat or how many times you go to the bathroom.
