According to a recent study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, daily weighing was associated with greater weight loss than weighing most days of the week.  Participants who weighed daily lost an average of 20 pounds at 6 months compared to only an average of 7 pounds lost by those weighing less than daily.  The study concluded daily weighers adopted more weight control behaviors and strategies than those weighing less often.  This is a significant difference in weight loss demonstrating that daily weighing can have an impact on losing weight!
