How and When to Weigh Yourself!

To manage your weight efficiently, you need to keep track of everything relevant to your energy intake/expenditure balance. This includes what, when and how much you eat and how much you exercise. You also need to track the results by weighing yourself and taking certain measurements.
When? Ideally in the morning, before you eat. If you cannot manage that then try to weigh yourself at the same time each day. It is normal for most women to slightly gain weight before their period. Delay weighing yourself until after the period. Weighing yourself right after exercise is useless because your weight can fluctuate wildly due to changes in water content. You may weigh heavier or lighter than normal. If you weigh yourself at night you are also weighing any food you have eaten and any liquids you have drunk during the day.
How often? Ideally once a week, at the same time of the day. Weight fluctuates during the month; this is particularly true for women. Be patient. Remember that real weight loss – that is, loss of fat rather than water – occurs slowly, if you follow the Beachbody recommendations for healthy weight loss. Your average weekly loss rate should be 1-2lbs per week. Don't get discouraged by short-term fluctuations.
How? Use the same scales each time you weigh yourself. Make sure you are wearing the same clothes each time you weigh yourself. The clothing must be as light as possible or, better still, wear no clothes at all. Choose accurate and reliable scales. Make sure that they measure half units (½ kg or ½ lb) accurately. Do a test buy placing 10lb weights/flour bag/sugar etc to ensure it displays the correct weight.Do not put the scales on an uneven or soft surface such as a carpet. If possible buy a Tiantic Scale that measures body fat%.
What If the Scale Indicates a Weight Gain? You may be weighing extra water. You could have consumed more salt than usual. Your body will naturally retain some water due to the extra sodium intake. If you have been working out, you may have gained muscle. Bear in mind that muscle is more dense than fat. Extra muscle is a good thing because it will help burn off the fat in the longer term. If you have been working out then proceed to taking your measurements. Constipation can cause weight gain. Add fiber to your diet and re-weigh yourself in a few days. Make sure that the scales are working properly. Perhaps you need to replace the batteries. If you have been too enthusiastic about pastry and soda, then perhaps the weight gain is real. Keep to EATING CLEAN and be patient.
