Our expert says:
If you are taking in less energy via your diet than you expend per day, then you will not gain fat. However, if your diet is so unbalanced that you are developing deficiencies that lead to problems like electrolyte imbalances, then you could be retaining water which would make you weigh more. Hormone imbalances induced by starvation diets can also cause water retention. Please do not starve yourself. Rather eat a well balanced diet.
