"Water Weight"

sandylc | May 28, 2012 12:17 PM

Scientists out there, please settle this curious question that I've had forever.....

If a person drinks a pound of water (or eats a pound of food, etc.), do they immediately weigh one pound more? It seems likely, until you begin thinking about the potential energy used in consuming and dealing with what's been ingested.....

Anyone know?
