And if you feel that you tend to have bed-time binge urges, this record keeping may help.

Picture this.
At 11pm you feel like a snack before going to bed.
You test your weight and find 85.4.
Going to bed yesterday you were 85.6.
You may decide to have no more than 100g of ice cream, after a walk.

If you weight is over, you may decide to only have ice cream tomorrow evening if your night loss covers that extra 100g.

It may just give your motivation a little tip, a little nudge, that may (or may not) make a little difference.
Without refusing yourself your treat, but putting it in perspective.

Used like this, you enter the realm of dieting, so be careful not to spend your life weighing yourself.
But if it can help... it is useful to know also if your night loss is affected by what you eat when you eat it: maybe eating that ice cream earlier (say before 11 instead of 11:30 just before bed) makes for a better % loss, for the same food consumed.

I am only interested myself in looking at the % loss overnight, but as you can see this can be used more widely. Just remember that if you engage in a diet you need professional advice (that excludes Internet-based advice...)

No.
It is also dehydration, but not only.

Breathing results in the removal of carbon from the body.

Basic metabolism requires energy, which requires burning a combination of sugar, protein and fat. That metabolism requires the use of some of the water, and produces also some water.

Someone said :

I think that is a very intuitive average for most.
This thread aims at confirming it via anecdotal evidence.

Nope I ate them in the afternoon and evening. About 2 st overweight now. gained a stone since last photos. I'm trying to avoid sun-damage so I don't walk as much.

If you want to lose weight best thing to do is cut out dairy as much as possible and foods with wheat/yeast as much as possible. I had to give up both after I realised through years of stomach problems that they where the cause. No I'm not saying I've entirely given them up I still love cheese but substitute as much as possible with Soya Milk and the great thing about that is if you take sugar in your tea/coffee you won't have to anymore because the soya will give you the sweetness. And yes I still eat bread but I make my own with spelt flour and soya milk again. The weight just falls of if coupled with light exercise like requalar walking or jogging.

You burn an amazing amount of calories whilst sleeping. More than you burn sitting watching tv.

Indeed.
And I'd say that one of the many reasons, is that when you are lying down, you need more energy to properly pump your blood around without the benefit of gravity!

That's only because you are not stuffing your face or drinking, and you must burn something off in your 12 hours of sleep.
The only tried and trusted way of losing weight is to move more and eat less... it works everytime

Again, a reminder that this thread is not about dieting, or dieting while you sleep.
It only looks at how much weight is lost, given weight can only be lost, to find out how variable is the rate in the same individuals and between individuals, depending on circumstances.

Tonight = 1.1% after a huge meal. Same as yesterday after a lighter meal.
