So could it be mainly water then? How could i possibly be holding this much water?
BY weight, the average person is about 60% water. If you are holding fat, 10% of that is water.
Just to clear up things up about not eating for a day or two who much weight will you lose. Think of it this way, when you lose weight, the first 5-10 pounds is water and crap. That is why you see people "going on a diet" get all giddy that they lost 5 pounds in one week. Yeah, they took a dump and pissed.
I know people that fast periodically. They really do not lose that much even on a 10 day fast. By the second or third day, the metabolism starts slowing down, switches from fat and glycogen for fuel and starts burning muscle as muscle protein to "save" the fat in case this is a long famine.
So, in regards to the original question, who knows everyone is different. Try it for a day or two. Then go eat and see the weight come right back.
I have lost about 11 in two days. I didn't eat anything but water. However, I'd say that the important thing to remember is the overall body mass. The bigger you are the more you can loos. Example, I am 187 lbs and I lost 11lbs. The ratio is almost 6%. For someone who is 220lbs 5% wight loss would be 13.2lbs.
