No, they shouldn't make you retain water.

Remember that, if you are adding calories to your meals in the form of fruits, you will need to take those calories out somewhere else or you can gain weight due to the extra calories.

The most likely explanation is that, like the previous poster said, weight is not static. It goes up and down related to how much food you have in your GI tract, how much water you've had to drink, the time of day you weigh yourself, and even if you've gone potty before weighing yourself.

Unlikely. Both foods are high in nutrients and water; contrary to popular belief, drinking/eating water doesn't make you retain water. :)

More likely, the culprit is elsewhere, and the fruit is a coincidence. Did you eat anything with an unusually high amount of sodium? Is it around your period? Have you been getting enough sleep?

Our weight is not a static number. It goes up, down, stays the same... all are normal!

I am not a veggie or fruit eater, but I started taking some watermelon and blueberries to work. I noticed that I gained 1 lb and not sure if these items make you retain water.

Nothing else had changed in my eating habits.

Thank you
