    1 kg bloat?

    I've been following a diet of 1800 kcal/day, but saturday night I broke it when going out with friends celebrating a birthday.

    I had 5 drinks which I calculated to be at most 1k calories (though I could be lowballing this), the next morning (Sunday) my weight had gone up 1kg from the previous day I stuck to my 1800 calories and it still stays that way today (Monday)

    I don't usually drink, this was the first time since I started working out and dieting, so I don't know if this is just massive water retention from drinking or if I did go way overboard that night.

    Thank you in advance.

    Extra stats (to 'defend' my 1800 kcal/day):
    -Age: 28
    -Height: 173 cm
    -Weight: 79.5 kg (post-'bloat')

    Water retention. I've had 3KG swings at the weekend after night out and stepped on the scale 5 days later to find I was the same weight. Normally takes a couple of days for the water retention to pass. Water retention can drive the new dieter crazy. So many people including myself underestimate the impact it has and can jump to conclusions that your diet is bad and eventually lose morale. It's a combination of ethanol, dehydration and your body thus storing whatever water it has available. It will pass.

    Thank you, I feel at ease now.

    I'm pretty confident in my diet (average of 1.5 pounds/week weight loss)

    But wanted to know if I had made a big mistake going out, (maybe 2k empty calories) or if it was bloat.

    Ignore it and focus on trends. I weigh in at 6am every Friday. Some of the guys here take daily measurements and average them. Going out will likely have slowed things because the perfect environment would be 7 days a week commitment to diet and exercise, but then some people need to socialise right? just see it as a minor speed bump towards your overall goal.

    If it was 2k calories, just eat 300 calories less every day for the next 6 days and it will be neutralized.
    Or do cardio every day and burn a total of 2000 calories within a week and you're fine as well.

    I will keep up my usual routine and just 'ignore' this without making it a habit. Thank you for your post.

    The 2k was an exageration, I calculated 1000 and are making up for it, but your post is still correct. Thank you for the input.
