For the most part, I eat very healthy, and log everything I eat on fitday.com. I usually eat between 2000-2400 calories/day across 5 meals (30-40-30 breakdown). I drink water or tea only. I normally run or lift weights, but have not been active at all in the past two weeks due to neck and back pain. My normal weight is about 212lbs. So on Sunday, I went to a Italian restaurant with my family for a get-together. I hate all types of yummy shit, appetizers, veal, pasta, tiramisu, etc etc. I felt pretty bloated that day, and don?t normally eat out like that, or that much. Come Monday morning, I weighed myself first thing on my trusty digital scale; its says 216lbs. I didn?t think I gained 4 lbs, but who knows I still felt a bit bloated even on Monday, but I started back on my normal eating routine like any other day. I haven?t skimped on meals, or eaten less; I eat about the same number of calories each day, and again, no exercise, not even additional walking as I have a desk job, and usually sit or lay down when I get home. I have weighed myself each morning using the same digital scale in the same spot, with no clothes on (for accuracy), before eating or drinking anything, and right after doing my morning business: Mon: 216 Tues: 216 Wed: 214 Thur: 213 Friday: 211 So again, I did not exercise, did not skimp on meals or take in less calories than any other day. The only other thing that was different this week is that I have been drinking a lot of green/white tea this week at work for whatever reason, more so than normal. Seriously, I have been lazy as shit sitting and laying down all week because -- Im hurting. So I?m wondering if it took that long that digest and metabolize all that shit I ate, and why did it not just get stored as fat or whatever? I just think its weird, any ideas?
