Hi there, Benji.
I hoping that Hope doesn’t mind me stepping in here, but I think she’s taking a few days off this week.
Are you talking about gaining a lot of weight overnight or over a period of several days? One stone equals close to 14 pounds I think, you’re not talking about gaining 14 pounds over a 25 hour period are you?
In the meantime, I’ll just say that a lot of people will see a weight gain the morning after drinking alcohol.
Since drinking alcohol can cause dehydration, and even mild dehydration can cause water retention, it makes sense that extra pounds would show up on your scales the next day. Drinking more water instead of less can actually help the problem; reason being, drinking water will rehydrate your body causing an end to the retention.
How’s the weather in SW Wales in July?
