Step one: Take your scale and throw it in the ocean. If no ocean, use sledge hammer to break it in 1x1 cm pieces.

Step two: Learn patience.

Step three: Learn what the Anabolic Diet is. No, I refuse to describe it to you. Hint: WHERE'S THE F***** FAT

Step four: Profit.


Could be that you ate higher sodium/ drank more water that day: holding water

Could be that you're constipated...

This is such a small fluctuation in weight. Try mapping your weight for 2 months in a spreadsheet, the do =average(start weight: end weight) [if you know how to do these things]. That will give a far more accurate, meaningful measurement of weight gain/loss.

And I agree, for AD it's supposed to be like 50%-70% fat. Eat bacon, cheese, fish oil, olive oil, nuts.

Or do a different diet


I agree with Dannyrat

such a small fluctuation in weight. It could be extra salt that day or more water or constipation..

Weigh yourself at different times during the day, weigh yourself before and after meals/exercise/going to the toilet... you will see that 2 pounds overnight is insignificant.

Don't abandon your diet because of this.
