Those Who Weigh Often Weigh Less
They were interviewed, amongst other things, about their day to day habits and different chores of life; the questions basically concentrated on weight and weighting frequency. Perhaps, this reflects a greater sense of motivation or you can say that standing on the scale leads to a better corrective behavior or motivation. In short, those who weigh often weigh less.
Moreover, the rate with which obesity and overweight is escalating in United States, it is speculated that 32 percent of the adults are obese and 66 percent are overweight. But what could be the possible reason? Research and studies suggests that obesity and overweight are more or less associated in part with stress and depression, which is particularly common among the women. There can also be galore of other problems like intake of junk foods, improper food timings and lack of exercise.
To counter this ever rising problem, attention has been given to health impact behavioral intervention and self-monitoring. It has been seen and evidence suggests that monitoring of behavior and every day calorie intake is very much essential for improved weight control. When asked of several successful weight losers, the fact became very much clear that the greater self-monitoring, weighing frequency is far and wide associated with less weight input or better weight loss.
Now, it might come to anyone’s mind that daily weighing may even inculcate a negative feeling as one would feel disheartened when in spite of such hard work there has been no change at all in his/her weight. However, if you see the flip side, daily weighing might provide you the feedback, which you could use for making some favorable changes regarding your weight regulations. But then also there is a vent left for the negative feel; so, weekly weighing rather than daily weighing is highly recommended.
In a nutshell, psychological behavior plays a very vital role in weight loss. If you weigh on a regular basis, not necessarily on a daily basis, the improvement and development will be very hard to ignore which definitely would help you in chalking out the future course of action. The actual effectiveness of a weight loss program or of diet pills can be more surely followed and proven this way also. Hence, if you want to lose weight increase your weighing frequency. It might happen that it would not reduce your weight but it would not increase your weight either.
