The Best Time to Weigh Yourself

7 a.m.
People who step on the scale daily lost twice as much weight as those who weigh-in on a weekly basis, research shows. For your truest weight, hop on the scale early in the morning, just after waking up and using the bathroom. Resist the urge to step back on multiple times a day, though, as your weight can fluctuate by up to five pounds during the day depending on what you eat and drink and how active you are. That said, if constantly monitoring your weight makes you feel obsessive or anxious, ditch the scale and rely instead on how your clothing fits -- that’s how Kirstie Alley keeps her new 100-pound weight loss in check!
