Common Day for Weight Gain. Study indings


According to a study published in the European Journal of Obesity, most people weigh the most on Monday mornings and the least by Friday.

The new study found that you are more likely to gain weight during the weekend and lose it throughout the week.

Eighty men and women recorded their weight every morning before breakfast for nearly a year. When researchers examined the numbers, they identified a distinct trend for weight gain on weekends and weight loss during the weeks.

However, researchers found that what sets people who ultimately lose weight throughout the year apart from those who gain is that losers shed more pounds during the weekdays. They are also more likely to adhere to this pattern than those who gain – losers hit their lowest weight around Friday 74% of the time.
