Post subject: When is the best time to weigh yourself?
Posted: Wed Sep 08, 2010 8:15 pm
I read a blog from Mayo Clinic and according to Nancy Klobassa, R.N., and Peggy Moreland, R.N:
Morning is usually the best time to weigh yourself, because variations in food and liquid consumption affect weight through out the day. Shoes and clothes can add 3-5 pounds.
They also suggest that you only use one scale to base your weight loss. There digital and mechanical scales. The digital scale has larger numbers and is easier to read. Mechanical scales with needle dials may tend to be less accurate than digital scales. Professional scales in gyms and doctor's offices are more accurate than scales designed for home use.
How many times do you weigh yourself in a day? week? month? Do you use digital or mechanical scales?
