I just went on a 6 day road trip, and decided I was just going to cut loose and have fun and not worry about what I ate or working out for 6 days. I figured it would be a change of pace that would have me come back super motivated and rested.
So, instead of my normal 5-6 high protein meals I ate 3 indulgent meals a day - breakfast omelette, burger & fries, a loaded pizza... total comfort food. A couple times I had chicken stir fries or some Taco Bell so I'd have some fibre
I was a little worried that I'd put on a pound or so from eating so indulgently. Instead:
Last Thursday: 173 lbs.
This Friday: 169 lbs.
The only explanation I can come up with is dehydration. Yet, I've been on a salty, high carb diet the whole time I was gone, which if anything I would think would cause some water retention.
