Our expert says:
Weight can fluctuate by nearly 3 kg per day! from the morning to the evening. This is why we recommend that people using a slimming diet should only weight themselves once a week, otherwise they will go batty if they see that their weight has increased by a few kg in a day. It is normal to have such weight fluctuations depending on hormonal variations, water retention (caused by differences in food and fluid intake, as well as hormones and stress levels) amount of exercise, ambient temperature (you will lose more 'weight' via sweating in summer), etc. Excessive water intake (more than 3-4 cups a day) over and above your normal liquid intake can wash important minerals out of your body (calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium) which can cause electrolyte imbalances which will in turn result in weight fluctuations. So be careful that you don't disturb your electrolyte balance by drinking too much water. Moderation is the key to good health.
Keep up the good work with your diet and consider doing some exercise to stabilise your weight loss.
