ET Online

Losing weight?

Many of us who are on the weight loss journey tend to weigh ourselves twice or even thrice a day, but may notice that the numbers are not quite the same.

Don't measure

Fluctuating numbers in the weighing scale may make us worried and disappointed. Here are the times you should absolutely not weigh yourself.

After long flight

Avoid weighing yourselt after a four-hour or longer flight. Travelling may lead to an imbalance in bodily fluids and electrolytes, which may result in a slight increase in weight.

After workout

Steer clear of the weighing machine after spending hours in the gym. Because of the fluid loss from the body, the reading will never be correct.

Week before period

Weight gain is common among women who are menstruating. Period-related hormonal changes add a few extra grammes to the body, making the scale fluctuate.

If you are constipated

A temporary increase in weight can result from constipation. Don't panic; once things are regular, the scale will return to normal.

After having this food

Consuming foods high in salt, such as sushi, causes the body to retain water, which affects the scale's reading.

On a summer day

We gain water weight in the summer because our kidneys try to store more fluid in the body. It is likely that you will gain some water weight.
