Regular Weighing Can Help Cut Body Fat

There’s a school of thought that regularly checking your body weight can be discouraging for people trying to drop pounds. A new study from Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania comes to a different conclusion. Findings were published in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine.
 
Because the first year of college typically adds 4 to 8 pounds, researchers used 294 female university students of varying weights and percentages of body fat for this 2-year study. Some weighed themselves while others didn’t. Despite not being in a weight loss program, subjects who stepped on the scale not only tended to avoid weight gain, but also lost a modest amount of body fat.
