Scale Back Your Weight Gain This Holiday Season

Maybe the scale is your friend, after all! Research shows that daily weigh-ins can help you achieve your fat-loss potential.

Worried about holiday weight gain? You’re not alone, and overindulgences during this time of year can mitigate months of hard work and training.

Prevent holiday weight gain by weighing yourself daily — on the same scale at the same time.

However, according to a study published in the journal Obesity, self-weighing can help prevent holiday weight gain: Study participants who weighed themselves on a daily basis either maintained or lost weight during the holidays, while those who did not weigh themselves gained some pounds. Give it a try, just make sure you weigh yourself on the same scale at the same time every day for the most accurate readings.
