The Technique That Doubles Weight Loss And Sheds Belly Fat
Just one simple habit is enough to start losing weight.
Research has found that the simple act of getting on the scale is enough to start losing weight.
Weighing yourself helps to encourage people to know their weight and to think about what they are eating.
Awareness is more likely to inspire change.
That's why in a previous study, people doubled their weight loss by keeping a journal of their exercise and eating habits.
People in the current study weighed themselves to lose weight.
They made no other conscious changes to their diets or lifestyles — although it was clear they must have made some adjustments.
In the study, 111 people were followed during the festival.
The results showed that people who didn't weigh themselves gained weight.
However, many people who weighed themselves lost weight and belly fat, or at least didn't gain any weight.
Study co-author Dr. Jamie Cooper said people naturally made adjustments to their lifestyle when they saw their weight:
“Maybe they exercised a little more the next day[after seeing the weight gain]or they watched what they ate more carefully.
Subjects choose for themselves how they will change their behavior, which can be effective because we know that interventions are not one-size-fits-all. “
A simple trick used in the study was to show people a graph of their weight over time.
Study co-author Dr Michelle vanDellen said:
“People are very sensitive to discrepancies or discrepancies between their current selves and their standards or goals.
When they see this difference, it often leads to behavioral changes.
Daily self-weighing finally does this for people in a very clear way. “
Obesity usually results from little weight gain over many years.
“Holidays and holidays are probably the two times of the year when people are most likely to gain weight in a very short period of time.
Vacations can actually have a major impact on a person's long-term health. “
The study was published in the journal obesity (Kaviani et al., 2019).
