    There's no way you put on 13 pounds, or if you somehow did I'm amazed. I'd say I've put on 6 or 7 on the scale, but after a quick bathroom break it would be down to a minor amount of weight gain.


    Nothing like the Day after Thanksgiving deuce.

    Not a problem Easily 10+lbs when I was younger. But by next morning I would be back to my original weight.

    well...
    i entered a biggest looser competition at in hs last year as a joke..
    i didnt honestly think i would loose any weight so i drank an intire gallon of water and didnt piss all day

    by 2:30 when i weighed in i had gained 9 pounds...

    needless to say the following friday i had sucessfully lost more weight than anyone else

    then by the end of the 9 weeks i had lost a total of 17 lbs... and i was completely dehydrated so in all honesty i probably only lost 5 pounds at best..

    i dought you could actually gain more than a pound of actual body mass in a day...
    thats probably a significant over estimation too...

    anything more than a half a pound of weight gain is just water weight.. or food in you digestive system

    that aside
    10 pounds is gunna be around the upper limit for most of us

    I weigh myself daily - generally. In extremes it can vary 6-8 pounds... but usually dehydration from a shift of heavy work. That's despite drinking a gallon of fluid.

    If you added unexcremented feces... I could believe 12lbs for a 200lb. male.

    At the end of the day - a pound or two a month is a monumental weight gain for me. When you chart your weight on a daily basis you begin to discover some very odd, but subtle, patterns which don't entirely make sense (yet). I think it's important to do that.

    True

    And in the last day and a half or so I managed to go from 155 --> 170lbs.. but that is with a bunch of carbs and really needing to take a piss

    Wash down a smoothie with some water and you would be amazed how the scale can jump I'm guessing it will take ~3 days to return to 155. Probably much quicker if I were to crank up the morning cardio intensity but I don't really feel like I need to.

    Well anyway that was fun. I hadn't planned on any kind of cheat until Christmas but this thread gave me an excuse. Thanks
