I've heard that you do, due to the amount you sweat and (surprisingly) urinate during the night. Sky One's, 'Brainiac', proved this by giving a man and his wife a new mattress to sleep on for a month. The family never lost any weight, but there was almost 1lb of sweat and urine from the family's Mother and Father alone.
