History of Weigh-In Day
Weigh-In Day is a holiday celebrated on January 4th every year. There is no clear evidence of the founder and origin of this celebration Day. However, Weigh-In Days can already exist as long as the habit of overeating during vacations - in short, is actually a very long time. The traditional Christmas party we know today, includes roasted turkey or another type of roast meat, potatoes and a Christmas cake from the Middle Ages in England.
King Henry VIII was the first British monarch known to have eaten a roast turkey for Christmas dinner, and the tradition quickly spread from then on. English poet and farmer Thomas Tusser notes that in 1573, roasted turkey was the main dish of Christmas.
How to Celebrate Weigh-In Day
Celebrating Weigh-In Day is quite simple. If you have gained some weight during holidays, let weigh-in your weight to set a weight loss goal.
Please remember: dieting is not about eating apples and apples for weeks in a row while exercising until you are exhausted. Doing such things not only harms the body by depriving the body of protein, vitamins, etc that your body needs but can also cause a yo-yo effect, making you heavier than it was initially challenge and feel even more miserable.
Diet isn't just about losing weight at all costs; In fact, it's about changing your diet and lifestyle in a way that makes you healthier, and losing weight is more of a side effect than anything else. If you eat healthy and exercise regularly, your body will begin to lose excess weight on its own.
