I know this sounds like a ridiculous question but hopefully you can hear me out.
Before Thanksgiving, I’d have 2 morning constitutionals and I’d take my bodyweight after those visits to the loo. My bodyweight was consistently 208-209 lbs. Since Thanksgiving, and I’m not sure why this is, I’d have 1 morning constitutional but then would have to visit the loo two more times during the day. I still weigh myself at the same time but am now sitting at 210-212 lbs, but this is before the two trips to the loo later in the day.
I have heard people joking about how instead of spending $10,000 on a super lightweight bike, just take a dump in the morning and save 2 lbs, but I’ve always thought it to be a joke and that’s it. Do bowel movements make up that much difference in weight? It honestly has never been on my mind until I started calorie counting and watching my weight.
