I've been counting kcals and exercise and have been, on average, a few thousand kcals under maintenance for the last 2-3 weeks. Thing is, I did see a dip in weight in the first week, but then a bloaty, post-takeaway (still within kcals!) day just hasn't really dropped away again since. And I'm still bloaty, pretty badly.
I've never suffered from bloaty in the past and I've not changed diet consistency recently. So I have no idea what's going on there. And it's making me grumpy. I really will look like a sofa for the next sprint tri. Meh.
