^^^ Along the same lines I read where for every 1 gram of carbs you retain 3 to 4 grams of water. I've notice if I consume something like pasta, rice or other high carb, I may weigh more the following day, but then I'm back to where I expect to be. I'm not on a low carb diet, but just on days when I consume more then average.
My own messed up thinking is that carbs such as bread, pasta, or rice are absorbent and tend to hold more water then carbs from veggies like carrots that don't absorb water. FWIW.
