I don't see the point of this. It doesn't follow the guidelines.
1.) You didn't eat a high carbohydrate diet. You ate a low fat diet. You bulked it with outside protein. The initial thread said throwing in even greens like peppers was enough to throw stuff off. You didn't follow the diet at all. This is enough to disqualify the whole thread, but I'll continue because the other errors are glaring.
2.) While your diet more closely mirrors a high protein diet than a high carbohydrate diet, you clearly were eating more carbs on average than normal, particularly relative to your normal macros. You clearly put on water weight, which is why you saw an initial decrease in weight followed by an increase. You dumped water initially due to a caloric deficit, then you stabilized and your glycogen reserves pumped up.
3.) Your high fat follow through simply caused all the excess water weight you were carrying to be purged, resulting in a huge release of water with the low carbohydrate AND low calorie count.
When I did the UD2, after my 1000g carb-up, I'd be 143 lbs. Come Wednesday after I went on <50g of carbs per day with 4 hours of hideous glyocgen-depletion workouts, I'd drop 11 lbs. It was 10 lbs of water, 1 lb of fat due to my caloric deficit. Nothing shocking.
Your weight tracking, simply put, did not hold long enough. All you did was spend a few days on a reduced calorie low fat diet and you measured water weight fluctuations. That is not even close to an all-potato diet.

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
