Question Everytime I eat red meat I gain weight like a sugar horde.

What's going on? I'm on a low carb-high protein diet, I exercise everyday (3 miles beach walk & Zumba 1 hour), and I drink loads of water. I also have been making sure I get plenty of sleep. My weight loss is pretty steady 1-1.5lbs per week (sometimes more) even when I have a glass or two of wine. The problems begin every time I eat red meat. My husband is an avid hunter so the red meat I eat is very lean (deer, elk, etc). I did not have red meat growing up, we usually had rabbit & veggies, loads of potatoes, occasionally we would have goat or lamb (but very infrequently).
I just don't understand what's going on. If I eat 4 oz venison steak with a salad or veggies, I will wake up the next morning with a 2-3 lb weight gain. You would think I'd eaten the entire pastry isle (which I very rarely have). How is this happening? What's wrong with me??

Don't fret,its probably just water weight.
I think red meat is naturally more salty than fish or chicken.

It might not just be the meat, it could be how its prepared too. The enzymes from different meats react with our bodies differently AND it is common for our bodies to have high days and low days in terms of weight. As long as you are still consistently losing I wouldnt worry about it too much. Good luck!
