Monitor weight loss progress

Generally it is thought that calculating your weight is the best way to find out your weight loss progress Monitor weight loss progress. But I think weight alone is an unreliable calculation. Your weight can change gradually many pounds depending upon your body hydration state on a particular day.

Weight loss is a continuous process. So if you need to measure your weight, do it only once a week. The diet plans, which are recommended, are based on your height, weight and sex for weight loss. Setting a weight loss target for you is a good thing, but don’t get too hung up on that particular goal.

Most of the weight loss recommendations are based on your Body Mass Index (BMI), which is, actually is the ration of weight to height. BMI can be really useful for average persons but cannot be really helpful for sports people as BMI does not take in to consideration your bone structure and muscle mass.

Unless you’re trying to qualify for a lower weight class at a sporting event, weight isn’t what you care about, anyway. We talk about weight loss, but what you’re really interested in is fat loss. You’ll know when you lose that extra fat, simply because you’ll look and feel better.
