A lot of dms came my way after the post yesterday and a common question was when should I weigh myself in the morning over the evening.

Throughout the day your body weight can fluctuate from 2 to 4 lbs.

Generally, you weigh less in the morning than in the evening.

This is due to the things you consume during the day and the various functions of your body while you sleep.

During sleep, your body processes food and drinks from the day before.

Everything you consume is broken down and eliminated through respiration, perspiration or urination.

Up to 80 percent of nighttime weight loss is from water, not including urine or feces.

The water in your body fluctuates from morning to night.

The amount of water held depends on your activities and the things you eat and drink.

Participating in strenuous activities encourages water loss through sweat, resulting in weight loss.

Consuming high-sodium foods and drinks, as well as excessive carbohydrate intake, results in increased water retention and weight gain.

You may also experience weight gain through the day as a result of heavy eating. –

Constipation can cause you to weigh more, while other ailments, such as the flu, can result in weight loss.

Hormone fluctuations, particularly in women, also play a role in daily water retention and weight gain.

Eat a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein.

Drink plenty of water and set realistic goals.

Taking these simple steps can put you on the path of sustainable weight loss.
