Do you know the mystery of the value of the human scale? Learning to read the body scale can make weight loss more effective
Weighing is what everyone who wants to lose weight likes to do, and of course weighing is also the nightmare of all weight loss people. Most people will use the value changes on the body scale to judge whether they are successful in losing weight. In fact, this is not correct.
First of all, losing weight is not about losing weight, but about the percentage of body fat. So losing weight or gaining weight doesn’t mean that weight loss is successful.
1. Read the body scale and lose fat easily
Depending on the biological clock, the body’s circulatory metabolism also changes. Most people are the lightest in the morning and the heaviest in the evening. Therefore, it is normal to have a difference in weight between morning and evening, but this difference has some particulars.
First of all, the weight difference between morning and evening is about 1-1.5 kg, which is normal.
When the weight difference between morning and evening is less than 1-1.5 kg, or even the weight of the next morning is greater than the weight of the previous night, it belongs to the range of obesity. But please note that you don’t need to pay too much attention to the occasional change, but if it is more than three to five days in a row, you should pay attention to it, and it is very likely that severe obesity will occur.
When the weight difference between morning and evening is greater than 1-1.5 kg, it is possible to lose weight. Also, don’t be too happy because of a change in value. Only if this situation lasts for more than three to five days, can you lose weight.
2. Weigh at the same time every day
There is a difference in body weight in the morning and evening. So to get a better grasp of weight changes, it’s best to measure at the same time each day. This makes the comparisons more accurate.
But don’t weigh yourself right away after overeating. You will gain weight at this time, but it’s not actually fattening in the true sense, it’s just eating too much food, and these foods are not converted into fat. So don’t worry about the number on the scale after binge eating.
3. The value of the body scale does not fully represent the weight loss results
In addition to paying attention to weight changes, whether or not to lose weight is successful, you should also pay attention to your own dimensional changes. Weight loss refers to losing excess body fat rather than simply losing weight. When the muscle mass increases by 1 jin and the fat loses 1 jin, the value on the body scale does not change, but in fact this change is the success of weight loss, and because the volume of fat is much larger than the volume of muscle, when the above changes occur in the body, from Appearance observation will also be much thinner.
Therefore, weight loss should not only rely on the body scale, but also pay more attention to the shape and dimension changes.
Making good use of a body scale can both help you keep track of your weight changes and help you lose weight.
