ok guys, I've been reading/following this site for a couple of weeks and this is my first post. I'm 29 and relatively new to serious work-outs. Yes, I am naive to a ton of health issues, but this is something that I am trying to resolve. I recently stopped drinking alcohol and started eating healthy and pounding the water("recently" as in a few weeks)....now I know for a while, my body will be adjusting to the changes that I am bombarding it with, but I AM determined.
My question of the day is this.....How long will I keep retaining the water until my body finally wants to expell it and regulate? I have been eating tons of protein and cutting sugars and additives to almost nothing. Also pounding 8-10 glasses of water a day....but according to my "smart" scale, my body fat % has gone up. I need insight here. I know there is an intelligent answer out there......anybody?
