Keeping capacity while losing weight?

Been having to lose for health reasons, but occasionally I just want to reward myself with a huge stuffing like I used to every day at the height of my gaining. I tried last night and all I could muster was a large baconator meal and 20 nuggets which was less than half of what I could do without trying before. Thanks!

That'll do it.

When you lose weight, you eat less. As such, your stomach has a chance to shrink back to its original size.

Increasing or maintaining your capacity is a terrible idea if you are trying to lose or maintain weight. It will only increase your hunger and undo your progress.

If you are committed to maintaining or losing weight, you'll have to make your peace with reduced capacity.

Can you keep your stomach constantly stretched with liquid bloats? Yes. But even then, I do not recommend it. It will do a number on your kidneys. This is on top of certain liquids throwing off your electrolytes and other nutrients your body needs from over-hydration.

Any regular bloater will tell you that you have to be mindful of your liquid intake. Doing otherwise can lead to painful leg cramps, blood sugar spikes, water toxicity, and other symptoms, depending on the liquid you're bloating with.

Could try a one meal per day kind of thing. That way you are simultaneously restricting, but also eating a lot once per day.

If you aren't too averse to it, inflation might offer a solution. Air has no calories and, so long as you are practicing safety/good aftercare, you could probably keep full and maintain capacity. I'm probably simplifying it, but deffo look into it. I know of people who lost weight but maintained capacity with inflation.

If you want to stay thinner, increasing capacity isn’t a great idea. Increased capacity is one of the big reasons people struggle to lose weight after gaining. However, if you really want to do it, competitive eaters who want to stay thin sometimes train by stuffing with plain leafy vegetables and water. Sounds pretty gross and miserable but it would stretch out your stomach without introducing a ton of calories.

Isotonic water is pretty safe right? If you measure the salt correctly?

To be immensly clear, I am talking about drinking unreasonably large amounts of fluid. This has nothing to with normal consumption or the occasional bloat.

If you plan on drinking obsurd amounts of any liquid for an extended period of time, you will flush vital nutrients out of your body. Isotonic water is just water with electrolytes. It will prevent you from getting cramps and water intoxication. However, you'll still flush a lot of other things from your body.
