Sudden Weight Gain?

Sudden Weight Gain? Topic: Digital case scales
May 26, 2019 / By Fay
Question: 3 weeks ago I weighed 157. This morning I weighed 163.8 and Tonight I weighed 168.4 I am aware of the weight fluctuations but I'm a bit curious about whether cretain medications/vitamins can affect the water equlibrium in my body. I've also been on the Vitamin B Complex 125 mg and Minocycline Hcl 50mg for those 3 weeks too. In the gym for the past week, I've done endurance training consisiting of 110 reps continuouslyon low weights on possible everysingle major muscle machines. I keep my diet under 2000 calories a day. I'm 5'8". I don't see where the 10 pounds go. I look almost the same. Anybody have a hint? I've used a digital and a non digital scale. They produce the same results. My digital scale also tells me the body fat. I'm 5'8" and currently 168 lbs with a body fat percentage of 22.7. I'm also 17 years old. I know it can't be muscle and it can't be fat. Is there some way to correct or stabilze the water fluctuations?

Muscle. It weighs more than fat, but is less 'bulgey' You might want to talk to your doctor just in case. Edit: Hmm. In that case, maybe you are retaining water. You need to drink lots of water (maybe more than you do now) to flush out toxins and salt out of your body (both cause unhealthy bloating). I still reccomend that you see your doctor.

The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to gain weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better: *1) Consume approximately 500 more calories then you're burning everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/... Get a diet and fitness calculator that you can put on your computer or cell phone. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities. Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight: Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.ht... Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/w... *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/carbohydrates.html Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow: http://www.rayandterry.com/html/images/PyramidLRG.gif?osCsid=26a424be471d1337e7c2f105d5c64d9d *3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.

Poo. Really. Poo. Take a laxative. ========= I see people do not agree with me, but I am telling you that is what it is. The extra vitamins often causes constipation. I did the same thing. And even though I seemed "regular" I knew I was "full of it". I took a laxative twice this week and the weight went back to normal. If I'm wrong, fine. But if you do this, and I'm right, just give me the 10 points please. ;-)

wow... that is way more that your flunctuations should be... mine are 8 pounds, and I run like 12 miles each day. Maybe your wheight is wrong. Is it digital or mechanical? If its digital, make sure you are centered when you weigh yourself, and that you aren't touching anything (a wall, etc.) it makes you lighter. Maybe you were touching when you got your lowest wheight

All right champ, here's what you do. Given that you're 133 I'm assuming you're already lean and skinny. From now on you eat like there's no tomorrow. You have to have a biiiiig calories intake if you want to get buff in 7 months. But don't eat anything. You gotta watch out for sugar. That's what the true poison is. not calories. you think this is easy but when you look closely at nutrition facts, you'll see everything has sugar: juice, fruits, milk, and because you want to get buff and not fat, you're going to have to avoid eating these, even if people tell you "oooh but fruitz r helthy". they tell you that you slap them in the face. Calories are what are going to make you bigger and bigger. of course you have to burn those calories off and calories from fat are also something you have to dodge, but you need a healthy amount of fat (found in avocados, or nuts) for your body to consume on a daily basis. You're going to want protein of course. healthy protein sources are the following: tuna, whole grain bread, cheese, and probably a nice protein supplement. I recommend pure protein shake. not a lot of calories, almost non from fat, 35g of protein (you should try to get 250g per day if you want to get big) and delicious flavours. AND NO SUGAR when it comes to the exercise, try to work out for 3 days, and on the third day, take a day of. Go to the gym everyday, and go hard. don't go there to look at yourself in the mirror, don't go there to help out the old ladies lift a 5 pound dumbbell, you go there for a good amount of time, and you practically don't rest. you do it serious. you know you'll do it serious if getting hefty is something you really want. you don't workout a different body part every day, evern if people tell you that. you work a lot of things, and you have to change the workout at all times, so you confuse your body and grow constantly. it's gonna hurt and your body is gonna feel sore every morning but hey, if evil aliens come invade our planet tomorrow, I know you'll be there to beat the **** out of them.
