I am on a moderate carb diet - approximately 40% of my daily caloric intake. However, during the last week I have been carbing up big time. As a result my weight has increased. However, I don't know how much of the weight gain is due to the replenishment of glycogen stores in my muscles and liver and how much is actually fat gain. I am currently 147 lbs and 5'6" tall. Can anybody tell me how much total glycogen in pounds can be stored by my size frame? This would help me determine what my weight gain is composed of.
Well I'm not smart enough to know how to convert glycogen stores into pounds, but for every 1 oz of glycogen that's stored, about 3 oz of water is stored w/ it. I would think that much of your weight gain is water weight.
