A new study has found that simply stepping on a scale everyday can help you lose weight! This is something I can get on board with…


Researchers found that people who never weighed themselves or only did so once a week did not lose weight over the course of a year, but those who stepped on the scale six or seven days a week “had significant weight loss,” shedding roughly 1.7 percent of their body weight!



The authors of the study said, “Monitoring your behavior or body weight may increase your awareness of how changing behaviors can affect weight loss. These findings support the central role of self-monitoring in changing behavior and increasing success in any attempt to better manage weight.” In other words… the more often you see your weight in numbers, the more conscious you become about maintaining or decreasing it.
