Who's lying?

Until scientists, physicians, and fitness experts can explain this phenomenon in great detail then I will continue to say that they don't have a clue about the human body.

I have a sophisticated scale at home. It measures weight, muscle mass, body fat, water weight and organ weight. It is reliably accurate.

Yesterday I knew I was going out with a friend for dinner and a few cocktails so I "saved" many of my calories until the evening. I didn't over indulge or gorge myself in the least. Split a salad with my friend and half of a small flatbread pizza and 3 drinks over the course of 5 hours.

If it takes 3500 calories to gain 1 pound and alcohol dehydrates you. How is it possible to gain 6 (SIX!!) pounds overnight when muscle mass remained constant and water weight decreased by 2%. This means that I gained 2% body fat and ate over 21,000 of EXTRA calories yesterday. Neither which is possible.
