Losing weight is just as much of a mental challenge as it is a physical one. Because our mentality plays such a big role in fitness, you can often trick your mind into helping you deliver the results your after. For example, when using smaller plates, less food looks like more, and you actually eat less. By tricking your mind, you’re able to alter your behavior, like eat less. But that’s not all, there is one thing you can do daily that is proven to help you lose weight.
Weigh yourself daily!
By doing this, you are triggering your self-regulatory process. This in turn, can promote a behavioral change. If you weigh yourself every morning, you are more likely to make better dietary and exercise decisions later. Now, of course I was originally nervous to promote this. I would never encourage someone to be obsessed with a number on a scale. But, numerous studies have proven this works. Those that weighed themselves daily lose more weight than those who did not.
