GT Get Fit Tip: less Carbs and Water to minimize bloating at night
When you eat a lot of carbohydrates (carbs) you will retain more water. Carbs are sorta like sponges and they will soak up water which will make you keep extra weight.
A gallon of water weighs about 8lbs and it’s not unusual for a person’s weight to fluctuate 2-8lbs any given day. The best time to weigh is in the morning after you use the bathroom and before you step into the shower. The worst time to weigh is at night after eating and drinking all day.
When you are trying to cut “weight” the best thing to do is to limit your carb intake and keep most carb consumption in the mornings for brain food. When you cut carbs you will begin to notice striations and more definition in your arms, legs, and abs.
Your body does not want to be bloated and look puffy, drink MORE water and eat less carbs (and sugar). Limit pastas and rice when trying to lose water weight.
