Away from exercise A study advising a new way to keep your agility
A new U.S. study suggests that people who regularly measure their daily weight during holidays usually succeed in avoiding weight gain.
Jimmy Cooper, a nutrition researcher at the University of Georgia, and her colleagues have tested whether it is as simple as a weight test to prevent additional kilograms during the holiday season.
It turns out that this period contributes to weight gain even with regular exercise.
The results of the study published in the opócité periodical showed that the participants who examined their weights daily and continued to change them maintained or reduced their weight compared to those who did not adhere to it and increased their weights by an average of 2.7 kilograms.
In the group that has committed to daily weight monitoring, participants who suffer from obesity and obesity have lost some extra kilograms.
“We were somewhat surprised by the results because our guidance was about keeping weight, not reducing it,” Cooper told Reuters. It is possible that the participants (obese or obese) were not fully aware of their weight accurately before the start of the study and seeing it on the scales may have pushed them to make healthy choices resulting in their loss of some weight “.
To conduct the study, researchers from 111 participants between the ages of 18 and 65 asked to maintain their weights during the holiday season at the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 and were divided into two equal groups, one of which was committed to climb on the balance every day. The researchers returned after 14 weeks to find out who had successfully implemented the request.
“Losing your weight every day is easy and doesn’t need any cost or time,” Cooper said. It is also a way to choose behavioral changes that everyone would like to follow. “
