Weighing Food & Yourself

Should we be weighing daily?

If you mean food YES, if that’s what feels doable to you right now. It depends on your stage of macro counting. If you’re a beginner, measuring everything 24/7 can feel overwhelming. So take it at a pace that feels comfortable. But we also challenge you to weigh your food to at least get a good idea of what true portion sizes are. It’s a really great learning tool!

If you mean YOU---that’s a personal choice. Everybody’s weight fluctuates from day to day depending on stress, sleep, recent workouts, undigested food in your stomach, needing to poop, recent sodium intake, hormonal cycles etc. If it’s not going to mess with your head, go ahead and weigh yourself every day and just take an average of those 7 days. Just make sure whether it’s once a week or once a day that you weigh yourself first thing in the morning, before you eat or drink but after you use the bathroom.
