    So basically im wanting to lower my body fat % and ive been keeping track of my weight once a week etc etc. Ive been going to the gym and been eating semi decent and lots of protein so i have definitely gained quite a bit of muscle recently. However i last weighed myself at 178 lbs and this weekend i ate absolute **** and binged non stop and then i weighed myself this morning and.i was 173 lbs, the lowest i have been in months!?🤔 surely i should have put weight on and not the opposite?

    I would say stop weighing yourself so much, you can have like 10lbs of food in you at any one time so weighing yourself at the same time every week (say monday morning at 8am) is the best way to keep track.

    I'd recommend watching this vid, this guy really knows what he's talking about

    oh my bad, anyway the scales don't matter much... Kinda put it across bad but dehydration and lots of factors can throw your weight off, still keep track but i'd say take pictures/use the mirror for progress.

    Hey Sorry for stating an obvious possible factor - has your scale been calibrated correctly? Is it going low on battery? (For my scale, if the battery is going low it normally does that - weighs me lighter than I truly am) Then, there is the biological factor I sucked at biology at college but the body weight fluctuates! For example, after your 'lady time of the month' your body can lose up to 5 lbs or some even more (I read somewhere that 10lbs difference is possible before and after the 'time of the month') As what others have said, other factors can lower your weight - illness, stress and work etc

    Dehydration probably
    You might have been in a deficit for the rest of the week other than your weekend binge
    Scales error
