Weight Lifting, TOM and ERG! Little help please.
Calorie/Carb Counting for three weeks, eating clean, 1200-1400 per day, egg, chicken, veg. all the good stuff, clean eating. Haven't missed a day at the gym in 10 days. I vacillate between 700 calories of cardio plus weights and 300 calories cardio and max full body lifting, 7-10 machines. I've been reading our resident 'lift hard' ladies and going for MAX weight 8-10 reps, 3 sets.
Then the good old TOM hits gain 3 lbs. Fine, whatever. TOM ended 2 days ago and I am still up 1.8 lbs and highly annoyed about it.
So my questions are: how long does it usually take to flush out the TOM bloat? And, when you are lifting heavy how does that affect the scale?
