A new study published in The Journal of Obesity found that weighing oneself daily and keeping a progress chart seemed to improve weight loss and keep off the weight. The weight loss found in the study was modest, and frequent weighing was more effective for men that women. The researchers believe that this method works because it forces one to be aware of the link of what you eat and what you weigh. Many experts still believe that you should not weigh yourself every day since daily weights may not accurately show true weight changes due to hormonal and fluid changes . But the idea behind the frequent weighing is to monitor yourself and to be responsible. Another good idea is to keep a daily food log to make sure that you are cognizant of your eating behaviors.
