Weigh Weekly to lose weight weekly
Most dieters are used to weighing themselves but, how does the frequency of weigh-ins impact weight loss?
The more frequently dieters weighed themselves the more weight they tend to lose. If dieters go more than a week without weighing themselves, there is a greater likelihood that weight can be gained.
This is because dietary lapses or errors can be identified and addressed earlier rather than later.
People tend to stop weighing themselves when they know they have cheated and this can exasperate the situation as it can make a day of excess calorific consumption extend to a week/ month/ year....
Weigh yourself at least once a week if you wish to lose fat weight and continue doing so.
If you wish to keep a more detailed log of your fat loss and muscle gain. Consider a body composition analysis
