Why Does My Weight Fluctuate So Much?

Weight fluctuations can be caused by various factors, including changes in diet and exercise, hormonal imbalances, or underlying medical conditions

Additionally, lifestyle factors such as stress, sleep patterns, and medications can all contribute to fluctuations in weight.

Short-term weight fluctuations are usually related to diet, exercise, and digestion.

Something as simple as eating a high-carb meal can lead to fluid retention, which can cause temporary weight gain. 

This is because your body tacks on three-to-four grams of water for every gram of carbohydrate that’s stored in your liver and muscles.

You’ll eliminate that water weight by urinating as your body uses up those extra carbs.

This is why rapid weight loss is so common on keto and other low-carb diets—because you shed water weight as you burn through your glycogen stores
