Calorie cycling cause extra bloating?
I know there are a million causes for bloating and false weight on the scale. I would just like to know if anyone's experienced these problems due from not eating a consistent amount everyday, or calorie cycling. For example, if someone cycled their calories like this: 1,400 - 1,200 - 1,500 - 1,900 - 1,400, etc.. naturally they will probably weigh more after a higher intake, as well as be a lil' stretched out in the stomach to hold more food. And if their weigh-in day happens to fall on the day after the 1,900 day, they're not gonna see any results cuz of extra volume in the tummy, perhaps a weight gain instead.
I guess my overall question is this. Would staying at a consistent calorie level everyday reduce bloating and extra fluctuations on the scale? I'm not seeing any results, my day-to-day calorie differences range from 300-500, and my tummy is a rubber balloon full of "air".
I do eat a lot of veggies, the gassy ones like broccoli, cauliflower, squash, spinach, cabbage, etc.. I take an anti-gas supplement, but it hasn't been helping. I get 25-40g of fiber everyday as well.
