    I'd be interested to know, because usually get a lot of bloating/water weight gain, and I'm wondering if I can still expect to have to make allowances during my weigh-ins for 'the time of the month'.

    Thanks.

    I've been on LT for 8 months with regular heavy TOTM and it has never made a difference to my weigh ins. This has shocked me as before LT I'd be known to put on up to 7lbs during TOTM. Different strokes for different folks I suppose - Some will lose less, others not effected. You'll most probably make it up some other week though. It all comes off eventually.

    Thank, ladies.

    Sounds like your experience is mixed.

    Usually I gain tons of water weight in the days before my period, and lose it by the time I've finshed bleeding.

    Given that we're not storing glycogen while we're on this diet, it made me wonder if this would have a beneficial effect on the TOTM water retention issue. It was my understanding that the reason we lose so much water weight in the first week of LT is because glycogen stores are depleted, and with it goes the water weight.

    Just wondered if this prinicple would be relevant for TOTM (ie no glycogen; no water retention).

    My premenstrual time was last week, as it happens, so if I gained any water weight it would have affected my first weigh-in (I lost 11 lbs). Just finishing my period now so, if I know my body well enough, I should have lost any excess water by now. I didn't feel bloated last week (I usually do) but then I was losing lots of weight! :D
