Optimal Morning Ritual For Effective Fat Loss


Another piece of touchy-feely weight-loss advice has recently been blown apart. For years, weight-loss experts warned people to stay away from the bathroom scale because the stress and potential disappointment would derail the fragile confidence and motivation of dieters.

But recently, health scientists at the University of Minnesota examined this questionable conventional wisdom by putting two groups of people on a weight-loss program. The first group was instructed to weigh themselves every day and then e-mail their results to researchers who would graph the numbers and show the progress to the dieter. The other group had no intervention.

After one year, those who stepped on the scale every day lost significantly more weight. When it comes to dropping pounds, the more hard data you have the better. Information, not to mention accountability, can only help.
