So this is odd, when I tried out a low-carb diet I found that after 2 weeks my weight had actually gone up a couple of pounds.
Yes, I did alter my calorie level to be far below maintenance. The interesting part is that then I switched to a 40/30/30 macro plan, raised my calories by 200, and the weight started dropping.
This contradicts everything I've read about low carb diets. I dropped my carbs to 5% of my calories, and I had no "quick water loss" or anything of the sort. According to bodyfat caliper tests done before and after, I actually gained a bit of muscle with it despite being hypocaloric. So can anyone tell me what's up with my experience?
The body is a funny thing.
