Weighing yourself daily can tip the scale in your favor. Just step on the bathroom scale each morning and keep track of your results. It’s a simple, cost-free strategy that not only can help you shed pounds, but also keep them off, according to researchers from Cornell University. And it works especially well for men. A study found that those who lost weight during the first year of a diet program were able to maintain the weight loss throughout the second year. This is important because studies show that about 40 percent of weight lost with any dietary treatment is regained in one year, and almost 100 percent of weight loss is regained at the end of five years.
