Shaking and Weight Gain

Over a year ago, I lost 50 pounds with diet and exercise. (Novel idea, i know) After I got down to my goal weight, I continued on the diet, but stopped the exercising. I have maintained my goal weight +/-5 pounds with no issues.

As of lately I've had an urge to start working out again, which I have. Not doing anything crazy, just cardio, light weights and pull ups/push ups/sit ups, etc... The couple things I've noticed after two weeks is one, I've gained 8 pounds and two, I shake in my extremities mostly after my work outs, but it can continue all the way till the next session.

I have upped my calorie intake since I've started and my water intake. I'm sure some of those pounds are water weight, but 8 pounds seems excessive. Thoughts? Too early to tell?

As for shaking... I've read some things online and I seem to be doing the right thing when it comes to my diet. I'm not lifting massive amounts of weight or burning myself up. I don't feel bad, but I look like a crackhead... It was so bad the other day, people at work actually made comments.

I had blood work and a physical about a year ago and I'm healthy as a horse.

...
8 Pounds of caloric intake would be an extra 28,000 calories.
Or an extra 2,000 per day of 14 days.

I would doubt you upped your intake that much.
With that weight gain and the shaking...
Why not just go to the doctor, and get expert advice.

what do you mean by shaking? do random muscle groups start twitching? if so, thats fairly normal for a lot of people that workout. parts of my bicep randomly twitch while im at work after working out.

weight gain is attrtbuted to the extra calories and water. what kind of calories are you taking in? whats your carb/protein/fat % intake, estimated.

You gave your muscles a shock when you started working out again. In response to that they started holding on to water to give them some more protection. It should start subsiding after a few weeks and your muscles get used to working out again. It's actually quite common from what I've read. Although finding those medical articles was pretty hard.

Found a quick blurb about it.

When you start doing more exercise, your body begins storing more fuel in your muscle cells, where it can be used easily and quickly to fuel your workouts. The process of converting glucose (carbohydrates) into fuel that your muscles actually store and use (glycogen) requires three molecules of water for every molecule of glucose. As your muscles are building up glycogen stores, your body has to retain extra water for this purpose. That's what causes most of the initial weight gain or lack of weight loss. This is a good thing—not something to worry about.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

Shaking as in Michael J. Fox... It is mainly my hands and arms, but a little in my legs too. It is only after working out, if I don't work out, I do not shake.

This is not me, but this is what my hands do.



I do about 2,000 - 2,300 calories a day, which is up from my 1,500 a day when I wasn't working out. I don't really keep track of the percentages.

hmmm, do you get nauseaus, light headed, cold sweat, or just the tremors. do you feel edgy or anxious, like you can't sit down? if its the light headed/cold sweat, maybe your blood sugars dropped. if its the anxiousness maybe its from the working out, the extra adrenaline you pumped out thats unused. you say its only after working out, and since its been a while since you last worked out maybe thats the reason, its like a CNS overload with the increased calories and sudden exercise. if it persists after a few more weeks, maybe you should get it checked out.

Do you feel weak too? It's more than likely your insulin levels dropped to much. It happens to me if I don't eat for a couple hours before I work out. Have some carbs about an hour before you work out and see if that helps. If it doesn't seek professional help.

Hypoglycemia.

What TYPE of calories are you ingesting? How often do you eat? What type of workouts do you do? Do you have a family history of diabetes? What's your shoe size.

Asking for medical advice on a forum is pretty easy to do, but digging through the responses from a medical team on a MOTORCYCLE forum can be quite challenging.

I'd say that Rdrash is on the right track, but I'd also look at what you are eating, and adjust it to give it some more quality... when you read the ingredients list, does it say "Enriched" or "bleached" or "high fructose corn syrup"? Just cuz there's corn in that ingredient list, doesn't make it healthy...
