As a paranoid poster I will simply say; I don't think you should be trying to water-load, it won't last long. Why would you want to gain a pound of water?

If you've gained a lot of weight lately and you haven't been eating more than your maintenence level calories, that is probably just water weight and will go away soon.

When I was a kid I was taught a rhyme:

A pint of water weighs a pound and a quarter.

In imperial measures, "A pint of water weighs a pound and a quarter."

In US measures, "A pint's a pound the world around."

Both are approximate....
You guys SO confused me right now. LoL.

I honestly don't know. But I do know that when I drink a bottle of water and weigh myself I gain like 4 pounds. I don't like doing that anymore.

454mL of water = 454 grams = 1 pound = 16 oz of water
How long will the weight still with you? Until  the next time you go to the bathroom?
