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

I can easily gain 4 pounds overnight if I've had too much sodium, so yes! During Bloat Week, as I call it, I can put on 5-7 even when I'm eating clean.
I've learned the hard way, there are just some times when weighing is out of the question!

It sure happens to me! That and a few days before period.
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.
