Puffiness and carbs


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Puffiness and carbs within the Diet & Bodybuilding category.

Excerpt: Does anyone know if there is any difference in water retention depending on the type of carbs ingested? I always feel bloated and gassy when I eat starchy carbs and I could swear that they make me look puffier than other forms of carbs. Have any of you experienced this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    each molecule of glycogen that is held in the muscle is stored with 2 molecules of water.
    Carb loading - for each molecule of glycogen 4 molecules of water are stored.

    remember this is within the muscle, could explain your puffiness but idoubt it.
