Last meal time and weigh-in time — when is the X‑hour?

If you think that it makes no dif­fer­ence when you step on the scale, then don’t be fas­ci­nat­ed.

Dinner time

If you usu­al­ly have din­ner at 19 pm, and then for some rea­son have din­ner at 23:00, then the next day the scales may show an increase, since the diges­tion process will slow down and more food will remain in the intestines com­pared to the nor­mal vol­ume. This is fine. Just keep this in mind so you don’t get dis­ap­point­ed with the num­bers.

Weighing time

If you weigh your­self at 6:00 a.m. every day and then one day weigh your­self after 9:00 a.m., this may also affect the num­ber you see on the scale. Ide­al­ly, it would be a good idea to stan­dard­ize the weigh­ing process as much as pos­si­ble to min­i­mize the influ­ence of such vari­ables.

To sum­ma­rize: do not be upset by night­ly weight fluc­tu­a­tions. This is nor­mal and does not at all reflect your true fat loss progress.

What is important for tracking progress?

What is the best thing to focus on to track the process of los­ing weight and changes in your body:

  • long-term body trends
  • mea­sure­ments of dif­fer­ent body parts
  • pho­tograph­ing progress

It is bet­ter to make adjust­ments to train­ing and nutri­tion based on these para­me­ters, and not on weight fluc­tu­a­tions in the morn­ing.
