Default Blotation really sucks

At the end of the day, on days I do not lift, I feel so bloated. And my stomach looks bigger. I know this is from eating and water intake etc, because in the morning our bodies are deprived of this stuff, but it's always so frusterating somehow! I feel like I work hard for nothing, that is, until my stomach isn't bloated any more.

I wonder if the really hard-core bbers with really low bf% have the same problem?

yeah in the mornings....my tummy is nice and flat, I can see slight defintion, especially when I flex. However, as soon as I consume food.....it gets bigger.

I do know how you feel! I guess if you just keep your water intake constant and lower your sodium it won't be as bad. During that time of the month there really isn't a whole lot you can do but wait till it's over or get a girdle [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] I have been keeping track of the way my body handles different foods at different times of the month, although it does require patience and consistency, something I have never been good at but am learning in small doses. Hang in there!

I hear ya sista! Mornings are the best for me too, it's about the only time I'm pretty satisfied with the way my abs look. Later in the day I lose definition too, and depending on what I eat seems to affect how much definition I lose as well. This is one reason I try to stay away from sodium and milk, both are proven to cause bloating and blur your hard earned definition. Also, as the others have said, be sure and drink lots of water so your body won't hold water instead. But yeah, I sure do know what ya mean! It sucks! Sometimes I'd swear that my abs look FAT! And after I work SO DOGGONE HARD to have and KEEP that six pack! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

I'm sure they do, altho probably not by OUR standards. We probably wouldn't be able to tell they are holding water but THEY would! It's all relative.
