10 Seconds to Better Weight Control

Want a simple, 10-second activity proven to help with weight control? Then weigh yourself daily and record it! That was the encouraging conclusion from a two-year study performed by Cornell researchers.
Study subjects who weighed themselves every day and recorded their weights on a spreadsheet or chart, both lost weight and kept it off over the two year study period. The researchers were especially pleased with the latter observation because studies confirm that 40 percent of weight loss with any dietary intervention is unfortunately regained in one year. This super easy tactic is felt to be uniquely effective because it forces people to see the connection between what they eat and how it translates on the scale.
I weigh myself religiously every day and have no doubt this quick exercise has helped me maintain my weight in a healthy range.
