Weekend Splurges Mess with Your Weight Loss

Weekend Splurges

I have a friend or email diet buddy who has demonstrated this in front of me for years. Every weekend she indulges in higher carb food and especially drinking beer. Monday produces painful weigh-ins of sometimes 5 lbs more (mostly water weight from glycogen stores filling up and absorbing water). She diligently low-carbs during the week and gets back down to her previous pre-weekend weight and occasionally less, but it is indeed an uphill battle. She loses weight with ease compared to me, but this pattern of eating made it much more difficult for her than it need be.
