Weight gain in a humid climate

Reply Sat 13 Jun, 2015 04:29 pm
About 6 months ago I moved from the high Rockies of Colorado to Hawaii. In Colorado I weighed 122lbs in the morning and within weeks of moving to Hawaii I gained 5-7lbs. I am now at 130 in the morning. I workout and I eat healthy. Mostly low carb paleo diet with a free day every couple of weeks. I was wondering if the change in climate- a very dry high altitude cool climate to a very hot humid sea level climate could have added any weight in the form of water weight? I can't figure out where the extra weight has come from- I continue to eat healthy and exercise. Could it be age related? I just turned 35 or perhaps the Hawaiian diet adds more carbs/sugar in the form of fruit? (I don't eat processed sugar but will eat fruit occasionally). I'd like to get back to my Colorado weight - is that realistic or could the environment actually add weight? Thanks for your time :-) Mahalo

Are your clothes fitting differently?

Is your exercise regimen the same?

You are right about the possible effect of more fruit in your diet.

A lot can account for it...including:

different exercise AND activity level
change in sleep pattern
different scale.
different diet (poss. more sodium, or more carbs/ sweets, or more alcohol)
drinking more water or retaining
change in medication
hormonal change

all of this could be temporary...and should sort out in a short while.

P.S. now that you're in Hawaii, inevitably, that might mean you're eating more fruit. More fruit can cause weight gain from water retention..and causes bloating.

Pineapple anyone?
