Here are five signs you might need to think about alternate ways to track your.

Having your eating habits dictated by your scale makes it nearly impossible to be mindful of your food choices.

How the Scale is Sabotaging your Weight Loss Efforts. Whenever we get on the scale, what we’re doing is actually sabotaging our weight loss efforts. Because we’re looking to an outside number, a machine, a piece of plastic, to tell us whether we’re doing well. The scale can’t always tell.

  • Scale is usefull only if you are capable to use it.

    Advanced athelete use it for monitore slow gains, and you have to use it EVERY DAY.

    Using it once a week is fucking idiot and without sense

  • Los Angeles, CA here. My husband and I have both been doing keto for 2weeks. I’ve lost 8lbs and my husband has lost 20. Other than fatigue we haven’t had any other negative symptoms, we are drinking as much water as possible and taking potassium and magnesium supplements.Thanks for all of your advice!

  • How long do I need to wait from the initial measurements until I do a second check? A month?? 2? Can someone tell me please! Thanks!

  • Watching from New York. Down from 225 to 213 so far… I did get a short, 2 days of keto flu that mostly just an onset of severe joint pain that disappeared on it’s own, on day 3… feeling great, really starting to enjoy this challenge.

  • I’m new to the keto diet. I started this challenge, without looking into too many details. I’ve been watching previous videos to catch up, but I still have a question. AFTER the 30 days are up and I’m on my own, I know I’m supposed to keep a 75% fat 20% protein and 5% carb ratio. But I’m not even sure what that looks like. How do I know I’m eating the correct ratio of food?? Is there like a easy way to tell? Is this a stupid question lol

  • So I read that breaking keto for a. Cheat day etc can have a really negative impact on the blood vessels. Is that true? I’m not sure I can go forever with out breaking ketosis

  • Cheers to you mate thanx for opening the world of keto to me managed to lose 15 klgr in 2 months lots of visceral fat,blood preshure went down,foot pain went away and many other things…thank you

  • I get sleepy and drowsy after my 4pm omad. I feel like I’d rather just skip it and stay alert. 600 calorie meal, 10% carb, 30% protein, 60% fat. No wheats, no sugars ever. 1500 calorie deficit, 6000 steps/day 1.7miles. 60 mins of activities.

  • I have been stuck my first month and my hand told me I was exchanging fat for muscle but I had a hard time believing that it was exchanging that much for so long! I have dieted before and not had a problem dropping the weight but I wasn’t working out at that time and this time I am! Thank you for this video it really helped me in my funk!

  • I bust my ass and diet, get on scale and I gained 3 lbs. I said fuck this, stopped all most exaercise and fasted until the weight I gained was off and I dropped two pounds. This is what I always do. I demand my body drop two pounds per week. If the scale does not drop at end of week then it’s water fast until it does. I refuse to not lose pounds

  • This discussion breaks my heart a little. My wife has no interest in joining me in Carnivore or even Keto. I wish she was with me like Laura and her husband. I could really use somebody to help me out.

  • It’s been 3 months for me. I even went to to doctor and my blood test came back normal for everything. I’m walking 2 hours 3 times a week and not eating bread pasta milk and I switched to black coffee and cut my sugar and salt. But after 3 months I will weigh the the same. I never changed. Not up not down. My clothes are not fitting better.

  • Hi. I lost some lbs since I started OMAD just over a month ago and I’m not sure if I used the calipers wrong but I seem to have gained body fat (even though I also started eating healthier (eating much less fast food, etc.)) Also, I lost 2 inches around the waist. I row between 10 to 30 minutes most of the week and I try to do weights every other week. Thanks.

  • I’ve been 194 for a while, but, I have lost 4 inches in my waist in 4 months of jotting my results, I measure myself once a month, I do hiit,cardio, and weight training, I have a great diet which is more of a lifestyle now, my bust is 40 in,
    my underbust is 36 in,
    my thorax /waist is 34 1/2 in,
    my stomach is 37 in,
    my hips are 47 in.
    My goal is to drop 40 lbs, I do feel a lot more stronger, and my clothes do fit more comfortable, my fat percentage with the pinch test has gradually gone down, this is just the first time I’ve recorded things down but I’ve been working out for 9 months now since I’ve had my son. My highest weight was 210.

  • I’m almost at the end of my two year journey I have lost a total of 5 stone I have 6 more pounds to go but I have been stuck at the same annoying weight for weeks no matter how hard I push I was on waaaayyyy too little calories and my body was screaming for more so I had to increase slightly which was scary but I’m now busting with more energy I’ve increased my activity I’m at a loss please help I log everything I eat as well and am definitely in a calorie deficit

  • How about working out consistently for 4 months and eating clean
    Not only have I gained weight
    I have never felt so defeated
    Four months and no relays
    Im only trying to lose 20 pounds!!!!��‍♀️��‍♀️��‍♀️��‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️

  • I started about two weeks ago. I’m a sophomore in college and I’ve been trying really hard. College dining halls is basically all carbs unless you have a salad. I started out at 204.5lbs and I weighed in today at 197.5lbs. I’m so happy and excited about these results and my future results. Thank you so much for starting this challenge!

  • I used to not eat enough when I was trying to lose weight, as well as weigh myself constantly at least 3 times a day. It plays a mental game with you and It sucks. I wanted to lose so much weight so fast, but everything good takes time, especially losing weight. To everyone else struggling, just keep going, one day we’re all going to look back at us fighting in this stage and be damn proud of ourselves.

  • Awesome video, I’ve been on my program for 4 weeks now. Diet and strength + HIIT 5x a week. I started seeing muscles become defined and more toneage but I actually went up 2 kilos. 4 weeks in I’d thought I’d lose way more and see more drastic changes. Though, you’re right, sometimes the way-too-high expectations cause a fake plateau. Thanks ��

  • Thanks alot Sir, you really made my day by giving each n every answer of my questions which were there in my mind in my weight loss journey.

  • Hey great video the only reason I am wanting to lose 5 or 10 lbs is because of clothes lol. I have some clothes that will look better when I get down to weight I was before but at this weight was kind of skinny. I’m 6’2 and was about 190 or 195. Thinking about doing the creatine as I think I’ll look better but might be heavier then will compare the results… Thoughts? Thx

  • I am feel better, cleaner,, my adult children are here but still lost 8 lbs. Not really hungry and doing intermittent fast. Thank you.

  • I weigh myself once a week just to keep a heads up but I go by clothes size and how I am shaping up or how am I improving with reps, weights and stamina.

    Ps…you have longer hair…it suits you.

  • It’s refreshing to hear someone clarify who SHOULD and who SHOULD NOT weigh themselves. I definitely have/had an emotional attachment to the scale. My thought used to be that THAT specific number on the scale, at THAT specific time in my life, I felt and looked my best BUT my regimen was NOT sustainable. I’ve done drastic diets (lots of cardio, major restrictions, weekly weigh ins obsession) and after gaining weight AGAIN, I’m weight lifting more, losing inches but the scale hasn’t budged. I feel I look better and fit better in my clothes but most importantly I’m not starving and binge eating as a result. I’ll have to rewatch this video time and time again as a reminder that I feel better knowing my body is responding by fat loss and the scale is just a number that shouldn’t matter anymore. Thank you!

  • Watching from belpre Ohio. I am saving the measurements til the end of the challenge but I’m definitely way less bloated and leaky gut issues were gone after just a couple days. Workouts are suffering a little feeling weaker but pushing through with less weight.

  • I’m the kind that doesn’t care how much i weigh just how i look lol �� you have to remember to trust the process overall working out and eating right just feels great even if you don’t see results as quick as you want it’s still something great helps you mentally and that’s what I’ve focused more on.

  • Yeah I went up on the scale but my pants are falling. My stomach got really tight and the scale still goes up. Don’t worry too much about the scale, follow your body.

  • hey Thomas I’m from Pennsylvania. when i started my journey back in June. i was 180. now I’m 165 thanks to your vedios and keto. I’m still having trouble sleeping.Iran getting fatigued alot. when i go running or just out go outside. i love my eggs with guacamole. when i go out for dinner i always order salmon i always skip my bread. I’m 51. should i cut down on my three eggs? i buy Englands best eggs. i love your Starbucks vedios Thomas. i need those. i love my Starbucks.

  • When I was living in Spain I dropped tons of weight, I can tell by how loose my clothes was fitting me yet anytime I weighed myself I was still the same weight and I did not understand why. I’m not even joking when I say that after 3 months the scale started moving and I was so confused as to why it took the scale this long. It was almost like the scale did not recognize the weight loss but once it did, it started going lower lower and lower. I went from 157lbs to 140 LBS in 5 months.

  • Too funny. The details in this video are me rn. I’m 150 and I’ve been calorie deficit and working out a lot for 4 weeks and zero movement on the scale but clothes are fitting me better and I do feel great. The scale always does discourage me. And you said it, I have been
    135 and I did feel great and I am hung up on that 135 goal. I will keep pushing! Thanks for this!!

  • I do the same thing���� hole week I’m in deit on weekends I’ll have my fvrt food. Nw I’m understanding y I’m not loosing my weight��

  • You inspired me to get back onto Keto and to make it a lifestyle change. I’ve already lost 18lbs since starting againmore weight than I’ve ever lost on it before. Thank you for the drive, motivation and no bullshit honesty.

  • Starting Challenge for Monday! I did Keto in the past but fell off the wagon. Been trying to restart but have had a hard time. Thank You for offering this plan��

  • I’ve learned a lot. I’ve list 2 lbs. I feel so good and have so much energy. I was able to do a 2 mile hike which I haven’t done in years. I live in California…

  • Wait so does the lean tissue develop form working out? So like technically if one were to just diet with light physical exercise, would that person lose fat without gaining lean tissue?

  • I’ve been on keto for 3 weeks and I’m following every single instruction and my body didn’t even get into ketosis I just made a blood test it’s 0.2 and not losing any weight I lost 3 kg 1st week and that’s it I don’t know what is wrong

  • Guys my mom lost weight really fast using some Keto diet she randomly stumbled upon. Here’s a link if you’re curious:) http://bit.ly/KetoWeightLosses
    Just thought some other people may like it!

  • Watching your videos, trying to get myself into a healthier life, fight my prediabetes and insulin issues.
    Last night I was cooking for the family and old habits die hard. I taste everything, and about the time I plopped a spoon of mashed potatoes in my mouth, I realized I need to stop that. I hadn’t had any carbs up till that point. Every day is a fresh start, right?

  • I did the keto and fasting thing a long time before this. works amazingly well but everyone around you is scared for your health lol

  • I love intermittent fasting,! I do 18 to 20 hrs about 4 days a week, but I do get cold… I remember you did say in one of your videos that this can happen, but I can’t remember if that is a sign that my metabolism is slowing down or is this negatively affecting my thyroid… I just can’t remember. Can you tell me so I know if I should continue with IF. Thanks for all the great info!

  • I’ve lost 19lbs in 2 weeks! Thank you for all the tips. FASTING has REALLY put my weight loss into overdrive! I don’t even feel hungry after hours 12-18. Crazy how the body works!

  • it’s been a month of exercise and healthy eating for me and during the first 2 weeks the scales wont budge at all! but what i did is i had a tape measure, measured and recorded the size of my arms, thighs belly. also took a picture of before and after. when you start to see the measurements go down you just know youre going towards the right direction. and right now i just weighed myself after one month and was surprised i already lost 2 kilos! Dont give up!

  • Suggestion: as a former trainer, what would you recommend to AmberLynn Reid and Foodie Beauty for steady and lasting weight loss. They have both struggled with their weight on youtube for years, trying to lose it with no success. I feel for them. If you were giving them advice, what would you say?

  • Better than a scale is a measuring tape. A lean guys waist should be 44.5% of height and if he’s under muscled it will probably be even an inch less than that.A guy at that’s lean and maxed out at natural muscle levels will have a slightly thicker mid section. That’s why skinny guys have no abs even at low body fat levels. A lean girls waist should be 38% of height. Also guys should measure at navel. Girls 1 inch above navel

  • I think weighing yourself occassionally is a good thing because it reinforces accountability. That’s why I weigh myself everyday. But, the mirror is better because like you said, “what if I lost 10 pounds but look like shit?” You could’ve lost muscle and/or water.

  • Can I break my 16:8 fast with bone broth.. or 20gram chicken..? Hour later can I drink bulletproof coffee or tea? Also during a fast black tea with collagen or Maca powder ok?

  • is it possible to stay on Creatine, Glutamine, BCAA’s and or Whey Protein Shakes? I commute transcontinental and can spend 10 to 15 hours a day sitting on a plane. I train 1 to 2 hours a day 5 days a week.

  • Yeah but I’m EXERCISING!! So why am I not losing weight. I’m doing made cardio running 5k at least 3 times a week and also at home circuit training 3 4 times a week. So please explain that?? Am I actually loosing weight what happens to the body if I’m EXERCISING but scales not budging.

  • I stop sugar, dont eat meat, dont do dairy, I exercises 4 times a week and I drink only water! I dont know what to do! Super frustrating!

  • I just wanted to share cuz I thought it was funny I’m actually listening to your video as I’m shopping for a smaller size pants. I had needed to already but now I really needed to. I’m down a total of 11 lbs since starting the challenge. My Husband and I started on the 9th. I had already been doing keto but it was more lazy keto. So in total I am down 60 lbs since January. I do feel better since eating clean. Struggling with that pre time of the month though and my cravings but I’m pushing through it! I changed your hot chocolate bedtime drink into a shake (not a hot drink fan except for tea) but last night added peppermint extract and it helped with that craving A LOT! Thanks for all you are doing I know we all appreciate the heck out of all your guidance and support!! Ypu are always my go to much ❤ & Respect!

  • Check my body fat percentage after 2 weeks still exactly the same didn’t even drop like 0.1% disaster hadn’t had cheat meals or drinks.

  • This video was great. I’m definitely in the do not weigh yourself category. Struggle with body dismorphia. I have been wanting to lean out just slightly more than where i am now and it has been a real struggle. I’m by no means overweight, I’m hitting the gym hard 5 days a week and cardio 5 to 6 days a week. Strength has gone up recently as well.

  • Good video. Been doing the snake diet…I find when I do a workout after a refeed I tend to retain some water which affects what the scale says. I would get discouraged so I stopped using the scale and instead let the mirror and my clothes be the determining factors.

  • You kept it really real. I’m the visual and scale type person. Bawled my eyes out yest when the pictures didnt reflect all my hard work. You put things into perspective. Thanks so much

  • The weight fluctuations are so annoying. It can really brings your mood down. I can’t even understand it sometime. Just now I weigh myself and the scale said 67.9… and then literally like.. an hour or so I stepped on the scale again just because and then it shows 68.8?! Like the heck? I gained 0.9 kg in an hour? Is that even possible or I need to throw out that fucking ass scale?

    It’s so discouraging. I usually weigh myself every morning and for a few weeks I saw the downward trend.. but since a few days ago my weight started fluctuating like crazy.. and for a few days now my weight stuck at 68.1 every single morning… did I plateau?? Sigh..

    I’m trying to get till 50KG here.. long way to go and seeing it stuck like that is so disheartening.

  • Thanks so much for this meal plan/challenge. I started Keto recently and have devolved into the dreaded “dirty keto” Using meal plan to really focus my eating and re-balancing to a clean Keto. I have a heart condition, hypothyroidism and bipolar. I have noticed less fatigue, improved energy and overall mood balance since starting Keto in general. Lost 29 lbs since June 2019. From East TX!

  • I needed this video…. I’m getting really discouraged about my weight loss I’m working so hard eating healthy and exercising and scale is not budging…. I have had bypassed weight loss surgery 17 years ago 2 babies later I gained most of my weight back….no diet seems to work any suggestions?

  • Wondering about my numbers. Just came off 16 hour fast. Keto Mojo for the first time to check sugar and ketones. Checked sugar first. It was116 and Ketones were trace at.7 I’m losing weight, feel great, no cravings, good mental clarity, no snacking. Trying to stay strictly with this 30 dat script. Went to the lunch on the script, since that’s when I rolled off the fast. One cup of homemade bone broth with onions, cabbage, bok choy and chicken cubes. No way was it over 3 oz of chicken and the vegetable ingredients were very small. It was just a cup. One half avocado. When I recorded it in My Fitness Pal with total calories set at 1200 (I know the plan calls for about 1500), these are my numbers at midday: carb total 16%/goal 5%; Fat 52%/goal 75%; protein 32%/goal 20%. Regardless of total calorie setting, I’m a little confused on these ratios. How minuscule it took to max out on carbs. By these numbers I’m done for the day on carbs and protein and I’m struggling to get fats up to the goal (through this whole couple of weeks) including today. Looking for input. I have some meds that could be holding sugar higher. I might have some genetic insulin resistance. Still thinking on that because just before this challenge labs at the doc’s office showed my glucose at 81. don’t Facebook, though I know this info would be better shared and asked in the community over there.

  • Thank you so much for all of your information and time. You really go the extra mile to help everyone to accomplish their goals to become more healthy!!

  • I’ve been working out everyday and I do before and after pictures I see a huge change in those pictures but the scale doesn’t move ��‍♀️

  • I am encouraged after watching this; I weighed myself today, and found I have put on 3lbs, since June 1st 2020 I have been eating clean, running 3x a week and lifting weights 3x a week, I am looking leaner, more toned, strong & bounds of energy, my clothes are even fitting better, so I was disappointed when I weighed myself this morning to see I had gained. Think I will stay away from the scales for a while, and just keep taking my measurements, eventually I will reach my goal weight. Thanks.

  • Thank you so much for your info. That challenge is awesome. Meal ideas are so needed. Thanks also for the new ideals and experiences����

  • i havent been able to watch the video yet but, based off the title i would say throwing away your scale wouldnt give you anywhere near the exercise you would need to drop weight. you would need to diet and do actual exercise as well.

  • Btw there are some people who had success with snake diet. Maybe you could comment on their videos. There is an interesting guy named Eddie fews who has some interesting videos about women pickup… He has very good content.

  • A 259 gram T-bone steak (approx 9 ounces, a little over 1/2 pound) has about 62.3 grams of protein in it. That’s not too much protein per day for a woman. (50-75grams/d) A man will need more than that. (75-125g/d) Source: nutritiondata.self(dot)com

  • Thanks so much!! I lost a lost of weight last year easy (I am a broad,curvy girl, wouldn’t have even been considered fat my fat just went to the right places), I gained a lot of visible weight in college and managed to lose a lot of it quite quickly. Gained a few pounds back recently and just can’t shift the weight at all, I’m excersising and eating way less. But I am obsessed with the scales for sure and I’m going to try and ignore it for awhile (this will be hard) and continue the plan I’m doing

  • I had been swimming and dieting all month and I weigh the exact same as I did a month ago. I have added in working out now and a keto vegan diet. It has been 9 days and I still see no difference. L.O.L.

  • You hit it on the head,, the scales don’t give the full picture,,I aimed to lose weight but then took into account that if your waist size is half your height your doing something right,,I’m 5ft 8in and waist is 32 inch but has been mostly 40″ but at worst 50″,,, Thanks for a great vid,have an Awesome week,,

  • My husband and I started the weight loss challenge 2.5 days ago and we’ve both lost 2.5 lbs each already. I’ve always had nausea after I eat fatty foods and true to form, I’m experiencing that now. Is there a point where my body will adjust and that effect will go away? This is so far the easiest and fastest diet I’ve done and I’d hate to have nausea after every meal for he rest of the month.

  • I think it would be really helpful for you to do a video on keto and stalls. What is considered a true stall in weight loss, both when first starting a keto diet and once you have been on keto for awhile.

  • Soooo TRUE! The scale does NOT tell the whole story. Love the part about how certain people should NOT weigh themselves at all! Good stuff ��������

  • Man I can’t tell you how good this man me feel. I’ve been dieting for a couple of weeks now and working out at least 3 or 4 times a week when I can, and I haven’t seen any change. Weight stays the same. I’ve been lifting and eating right, tracking my food, and drinking lots of water. My issue is I’m not seeing how much mass in actually putting on while lose fat %. I feel like I’m not doing good. But I feel great and am looking more times. It’s a slow process, I wish I could see results faster, but this video helped me realize it just keep working toward my goals.

  • Nice loss Kate, that Jillian will kick anyone’s butt. Have you stated a goal weight or you just going to loose until you feel comfortable? Good luck this week.

  • I started Keto and Intermittent fasting on 8/12/19. As of last week I am down 21lbs in 5 weeks. Went from 297 to 276. All of my research is based on the Thomas DeLauer Youtube Channel and friends that have done Keto in the past. I started Keto before the official challenge started but have enjoyed it and am thrilled with the results. I was drawn to Tom because I am exactly where he was when he started. Close to 300 lbs with a non alcoholic fatty liver. My end goal is to get to 230lbs. I haven’t been this weight since I was 16 years old.

  • I did the attached brisket method in my smoker, and it was AMAZING! Just salt and pepper….
