    Hi,

    When ss or doing 790 our body is burning fat, but some weeks we dont lose and they say it's down to water retention.

    But if fat weighed more than water, would'nt we still see a loss.

    Hope that makes sense :confused:

    Thanks

    you are quite confusing.......it depends how much water you are retaining....1 litre of water weighs 2 and a bit pounds.....and obviously a pound of fat weighs a pound....so it depends how much water you are retaining.......:D
