Tip of the Day: Ditch the Scale

One celebrity trainer on why weight isn't everything
Staff Writer

"If you’re working out for weight loss, make sure you're using the right measurements to track your progress. Get rid of your scale and instead measure inches. Scales just measure mass, and you’ll lose inches before pounds, so don’t let the scale mess with your head. Instead, get your body fat tested and pull out those pair of pants that 'should' fit. Try them on week by week—the day they finally fit will feel incredible."

—Barry Jay is the founder of Barry’s Bootcamp, an international gym and high-intensity program that's loved by celebs like Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric and helps thousands of people lose weight and tone up each day.
