    I've never heard anyone talk about this before, so maybe my body is just weird, but it's something I've noticed about my body for several years now. If I've been eating a healthy diet for a while and suddenly eat a particular terrible meal, I notice the next day my stomach looks much more lean. These are the meals I've noticed this paradoxical effect with the most:

    • McDonald's Big Mac Meal with fries, soft drink and a hot fudge sundae
    • Pizza

    There are other ones but these are the only ones I can think of right now. Have you guys noticed any foods you eat with paradoxical effects?

    I wish. I have the metabolism of a pre-hibernation bear. I can have the occasional pizza or McMeal without it bloating up, but any 'junk' eaten more than twice a week shows.
    Well, you're lucky!

    What I didn't mention is, I can only eat it that one time. If I continue eating it for an extended period of time, I start to gain fat. But if I'm eating healthy, then suddenly eat a Big Mac meal, the next day I can see my abs better. Weird huh?

    If you've been on a low carb diet for a while and then have a high carb/high glycemic meal it can actually have the effect of 'carb loading' i.e. you're re-filling the muscles with a surge of glycogen causing them to 'pop'.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that trick, as bodybuilders do it just before a show. But I'm never on a low carb diet.

    Ah. Then yes! This happens to me with pizza, burgers, rolls and icecream.

    Hmm it may have to do with the fact that you are consuming a large amount of sodium, which you may not do on a clean diet. Salt dehydrates meaning a leaner looking body.
