Why is it that when I go to the gym I lose no weight.
Today I weighed myself at the gym and gained 100g!! wtf!
In 2 weeks I have gained 100g!!
If I sit on my butt and eat 1200 cals I lose 1 kg a week but the second I go to the gym it stops and when going to the gym I up my cals to around 1400 high protein. Im going 5-6 times a week. around 1.5 hours each time.
I ended up crying at the gym in the toilets..classy ..not!
Why is this happening?

Maybe leave the scales alone and go by measurements instead for a while.

I'm currently doing the Michelle Bridges 12wbt. The amount of exercise you are doing is very similar to the amount of exercise she has us doing, and we are allowed to eat 1200 cals per day. Maybe try exercising WITHOUT increasing your calorie intake for a while and see how you go? 1200 calories is plenty enough food to fuel your body, as long as a good portion of it is protein.

Same happens to me, but i lose inches. Its a good thing it means your not compromising your muscle. Keep at it, soon you will need to buy smaller clothes.

You are probably gaining muscle, which in the long term will help you lose more.

Michelle Bridges said in one of her videos, that if you blame weight gain on gaining muscle you are most likely kidding yourself. Apparently it takes months of heavy weights training to gain 1kg of muscle.

Keep going! It will definitely turn around if you persist! Your muscles do hold water and muscle glycogen (if you weigh yourself straight after a workout) so it can appear nothing is happening. I would do some weight trainng as wellif you are not already and maybe not increase your calories. You will get there.

Im not saying your gaining muscle, i said your not compromising the muscle u have. My pt told me that if i lose weight without maintaining and strenghtening my muscles while i do so, ill eng up flabby and saggy but with a greater loss on the scales. If i treat them well and work out at the gym, the scales wont budge but i will lose fat. I believe him 100% its been true for me.
100g gain could be anything, fluid, the need to poop etc.
