The holidays are around the corner, and so are all those holiday calories. But if you want to help prevent gaining a few pounds before the new year, there’s something easy that you can do – weigh yourself every day.
A pound or two isn’t something to obsess about, but just weighing daily can really help – a study found of those who followed the same diet plan for six months, those who weighed themselves daily lost an average of 13 pounds more than those who didn’t.
It makes us more mindful about things like snacks and encourages us to exercise more.
But when should you do it? The best time of day is first thing in the morning – you’ll get more consistent results and will be less likely to forget.
