Yes, this happens to me too. Or if I eat sugar, it causes water retention also. An insulin spike from sugar will also cause the body to retain water.
Give up everything you love, and everything that tastes good = weight loss! Simple as that!

I had this experience and registered a 2lb. gain on my weigh-in day. However two days after I lost it which felt so good.
If water retention was the case of your weight gain...your body should return to a more accurate scale weight in about 2-4 days (for most people) Dietitian Becky

eating foods rich in sodium before a weigh in is not advisable since eating salty food causes water retention. If you happen to have a weigh in after consuming a sodium rich food, there may be discrepancies in the weight measured since the weight measured is also composed of water weight
Probably. Sodium does it to me everytime. Drink lots of water today and try weighing yourself again tomorrow.

This week my calories were on target. I ate 3-4 servings of a salty food the night before my weekly weigh-in. I was up 2 pounds. :( Is it possible part of the problem was retaining water from excess sodium. Thank you.
