A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine is concluding that the key to maintaining weight loss is daily weighing in order to have immediate feedback from which to correct any potential bad behavior or changes.
Personally, this strikes me as making someone incredibly obsessive over every single pound gained or lost in the ebb and flow of a given week. I can understand vigilence, but this is ridiculous. Think of the people who will make wholesale dietary changes after the increase of 2 pounds one day, when it could be nothing more than water retention and maybe not enough fiber. They’ll end up starving themselves for a quick fix.
How’s that going to be healthy in the end?
