You have finally reached your target weight, but do you know how to maintain weight loss? According to a study in The New England Journal of Medicine, those who have lost some weight and want to maintain it, may benefit from daily weigh-ins.
In this study, over 300 people who had recently lost 40 pounds were either told to weigh themselves daily or were given information about diet and exercise.
It is known that the majority of people who use dieting to shed pounds eventually regain some weight. Surprisingly, people who have weighed themselves daily, gained back less weight.
Conclusion: To maintain weight loss, watch your weight closely and adjust your diet and exercise plans if you see a consistent weight increase. But keep in mind that scale weight does not tell the whole story – if you are gaining muscle – you have nothing to worry about.
