I've been told muscle weighs more than fat but I've only been to the gym 3 tyms, is dat enough to make me put on 4lbs of muscle weight?

    I wouldn't have though so, you should post what you are eating so we can critique it love.

    Hi Rose
    Im no expert but it sounds like water retention or hormone changes to me. I can gain 3lbs overnight at certain times of the month and it goes again a few days later. Hang in there!

    Muscles need glycogen to work efficiently so you may be retaining water and a bit of carbs to provide that glycogen. This will mean that you weigh more.

    Fluid levels fluctuate a lot on Atkins so don't be too worried at this stage! Very early days, yet.

    Good luck!
