I agree, it's water weight but the carbohydrates you ate probably went to refilling the glycogen stores in your body, which are always depleted on a low-carb diet. The more carbohydrates you eat, the more glycogen you store. Storing glycogen also involves a lot of water (there's an equation out there for how much but it is significant). That is why you gain weight so quickly when eating carbohydrates after not eating them. Whenever you are low-carb eating, you "owe" the scale a few pounds when you return to normal eating. Sorry!
