Using the Scale for Weight Loss
One of the best weight loss tricks for success is to use the weight scale you’ve hidden and dread to step on. But, scientists have recently revealed that it’s the best tool for shedding pounds – without diet or exercise.
The old way of thinking was to only weigh yourself once a week or even once a month. Now, studies indicate that when you weigh yourself every day, your chances of weight loss success increase tenfold.
Stepping on the scales can be a daily wake up call for you to cut down the calories and hit the gym. A recent study followed almost 300 women after measuring their body fat percentage.
Over the course of two years, the women were not on a weight loss diet. But, one group weighed every day and the other did not. The unexpected results showed that women who weighed themselves on a daily basis lost more weight and fat percentage than those who didn’t.
Weighing yourself daily is a form of motivation that can be highly effective when trying to change your eating and exercising behavior each day. Every pound you lose is concrete evidence – on the scale – that your weight loss plan is working or not.
As the scale indicates weight loss or gain, you can adjust the way you’re eating and exercising. The scale won’t lie to you and you can quickly see what’s working in your life and what isn’t.
The scale will also tell you a lot about your lifestyle. A night of drinking and binging on snacks will show on the scale as soon as the next day and you’ll have a good idea about what you must lose to maintain or shed pounds for health and wellness.
Things are changing rapidly in how we view weight loss methods. What was shunned in the past may have a popular revival in 2018 as more studies are performed and more is revealed about what works – and what doesn’t – for weight loss and healthy living.
