3. Tracking Weight Loss With A Scale

Is weighing yourself regularly a meaningful, valid, or even safe practice? Is it helpful or harmful? In this episode we explore when we as Dietitians do and don't recommend the use of a scale, how to properly take advantage of this tool (should you use it), and the reason behind short-term fluctuations in bodyweight. We hope this episode will leave you better equipped to decide if the scale is a valuable tool for you as you move toward your health and fitness goals this season, whilst encouraging you to also consider additional and more meaningful indicators of wellbeing than weight alone!
