Can someone sort this out for me?

Postby propinion » Tue Nov 29, 2005 6:06 pm

Can someone please tell me how long it actually takes for weight to manifest itself in either inches or kilos - the reason I ask is because my weight will just fluctuate so incredibly randomly sometimes by 4 kgs overnight and I know that I havent had a large eating week or anything! This is why I wonder whther it can take a month for weight to come on? any help?

Hey I get that too! 7 kilos in one week and then 4 overnight! Can't wait to see any answers.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

I too would like to know the answer to this one. I once gained 3 permanent kilograms in 5 days, it took me a month of really hard work to shed it again.

All I do know is that my naturopath once told me that some people have larger bowels than other people and it can hold quite a few kilo's when full.
Also Protein is what they feed anorexic sufferers in hospital to try and make them gain weight. Whilst we do need protein to repair our bodies some diets contain too much protein especially from animals.

I hope someone can answer your question Propinion.

To gain 450g you need to eat an extra 14,700 kj a day, that is on top of the kj's you need for basic human functions.
Which means to put on 4kg of weight overnight you would need to eat approxiamtely an additional 100,000kj! So it is likely there are other factors at play, such as
-fluid retention (was the weight gain just before your period? Women are likely to retain at this time.
-Did you measure yourself at the same time of day, in a similar outfit? I usually weigh myself first thing in the morning, so I know I'm not full of food and water!
- If you have non-electronic scales, are they set to zero? Is the floor perfectly flat?
-Have you started a new course of medication? Sometimes drugs have side effects of weight gain or fluid retention.

That's all I can think of at the mo, other than to agree it could be faulty scales.

Just a thought -

If your scales are faulty and keep have you puttting on weird amounts of weight, imagine the conversation at the service desk. I know most scales (or at least mine) have warranties.

You: "Excuse me, but I'd like to return my scales, they're faulty and still under warranty"

The chick behind the desk: " What's wrong with them?"

You: "they keep telling me I've put on weight"

Chick: :? :lol:

I wonder how many sets of scales that are faulty ACTUALLY get returned and accepted as being faulty?

Butterfly Dawn, that is SO funny! :lol:
If that was the case, I have run into heaps of faulty scales over the years!
