The Smartest Time to Weigh In

Researchers from Finland recently found that Wednesday is the day your weight is least likely to fluctuate. In this study, 40 overweight adults were weighed nearly 2,900 times over the entire year. Wednesdays were found to be the most accurate reading of weight since the weekend showed greater gains and losses. It is common that people tend to gain weight on the weekends due to eating out more often, snacking, drinking alcohol or even soda. More weight is typically lost during the week due to the regular routine and workout schedule. When tracking your weight, be sure to stay consistent using the same scale, the same time of day, wearing the same clothing, and weigh in on Wednesdays.
