Could i be retaining water ? I gained weight on a healthy low cal diet + weight baring exercises. Why am i not loosing? So upset!

You should weigh yourself after you get up in the morning, after you urinate. If you gain weight daily, it is due to fluid accumulation, not due to increased muscle mass. Muscle mass takes longer to increase your weight than does fluid accumulation. Good luck. ...Read more

Would need much more info about your weight, "diet", exercise, etc. ...Read more
