sudden weight gain
I have been riding very regularly and have slowly increased the distance I ride from 13miles to 50miles. Simultaneously, I have cut down my food portions and also completely stayed away from unhealthy and fatty foods. I have seen the results, total of 23 lbs lost in 75 days and feel great about it. This last weekend I did my first 50 mile ride and just had regular recovery food (milk, fruits, protein whey powder, bagel, chicken salad etc.) after the ride and had a healthy meal in moderate quantity for dinner. Since then, my weight has shot up by 5 lbs. I am not convinced that my food intake contributed to this sudden weight gain as I haven't eaten anything out of ordinary.
What should I make of this? Water weight? Muscle gain weight? or fat gain weight?
