New Delhi :  

A latest study led by a group of researchers from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has found that weighing yourself on a daily basis may help you to reduce those extra inches on your waistline.

According to researchers, measuring weight regularly may encourage people to make some effective changes in their daily habits and the way they are leading their lives. Experiencing small improvement in the months-long process will surely motivate individuals to stick with their diet and exercise plans.

Talking about the same, Dr Meghan Butryn from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has said, "Regularly weighing yourself can motivate you to engage in healthy eating and exercise behaviors."

"It provides you with evidence that these behaviors are effective in helping you lose weight or prevent weight gain," Meghan was quoted further.

The latest study, published in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine, was conducted on 294 college girls of different weights.

Hence, the latest findings may encourage people for weighing on a regular basis in order to loss extra weights and prevent gaining it yet another time.
