After the first week of reducing your calories, working out at the gym and consuming different varieties of fruit and vegetable medleys, you step on the scale to see your fate. If your weight loss is so remarkable that you can’t believe it, chances are you shouldn’t because you’ve probably only lost water weight.
According to WeightlossForAll.com, when a person cuts back on calories suddenly, the body tries to make up the difference by borrowing some fat and protein from your body. When this happens, you lose a lot of water weight, as muscle tissue holds a lot of water.
During the following week the body stabilizes and you might see a huge difference on the scale. More than likely, it will look as though you gained weight this week, when really the scale is showing you an accurate body weight.
