I started to fast to lose weight for my wedding and also i heard that water fasting can help to help with my depression that i have had for many years....The water fast worked for me last week losing 6lbs in weight and loads of inches of my waist.....But this weeks i have been weighted and found my self putting weight on How???? I've put on 8oz...I'm so upset i just dount know what to do anymore. :huh:..I found that the water fast was helping me with my depression,,but i also wanted it to lose weight to..I feel so low and down at the moment as i put in 100%..

Your walking can explain this yes, but please don't call it a "Problem"!

I have noted people gaining weight during a fast (I mentioned it on these forums before). We researched this by determining body composition and came to the conclusion that fat energy (35 kilojoules per gram) was partly converted to muscle (17 kilojoules per gram).. thus if you gain weight during a fast, you actually lose MORE fat than when you lose weight!

Bear in mind that in these circumstances, you have to supply energy to survive, PLUS energy to build muscles. As you are not eating, all this energy has to come from your fat.

Weight is NOT a good measure of what's happening in your body. Body VOLUME would be better, and I'm currently building a chamber to measure this. You could do a few measurements yourself.. simple things like circumferences of your waist, thigh and upper arms for example. If you could add a few skin fold measurements, that will help also.

We who fast regularly are really jealous of those able to gain weight during a fast!
