Well it sounds crazy but it seems to be happening. I was over at someone's house for dinner last night and obviously had to go off my diet.
I had carrot soup, a small portion of BBQ chicken, 3 potato pancakes, some cooked sqaush dish, a small portion of fruit (black berries, strawberries, cranberries, and blue berries), a strawberry sorbet type dish, and a very small piece of cake.
It sounds like a lot but I limited my portions with the exception of the potato pancakes. I got on the scale this morning and I had gained almost 5 pounds even though I rode my exercise bike when I got home for 50 minutes. Is it possible to gain that weight from the food alone? Or is it simply fluid retention of some kind. I noticed this happeneing before when I eat big meals. Any advice?
