    Stomach is bloated but lost weight. How does that work?

    Hey,

    So, on the weekend I went out and had like 10 beers and my stomach is really bloated, however, I weighed myself today and also same time last week and I've lost 200 grams but my stomach is bloated and it looks like I've put on weight. Just curious as to how that works?

    200g is negligible ... It could be water, it could be you haven't gone to the toilet :P

    You're bloated because beer does that. I'm still bloated from a similar weekend.

    Alcohol is a diuretic - hence the weight loss. Beer is irritating to the gut, hence the bloat.
