A smart scale is something everyone should have when starting their Superhuman Transformation.
Now, I do want to be clear about something: I am well aware, and want you to be well aware, that weight can fluctuate A LOT for a handful of different reasons.
For example: water weight.
Take boxers and mixed martial arts. They can lose 5-15 pounds in a day just to make weight for a weigh in by depleting all their water weight.
We can also have big variations like that depending on water intake, sodium intake, carb intake, hormones, and a variety of other things.
So do I think checking the scale every single day is absolutely essential to know an exact and precise number?
But I do think it's a great way to track your progression and stay motivated by seeing yourself progress.
It's also a great way to get an idea (over time) of where your caloric range and overall food intake is.
Sometimes we may need to increase or decrease our overall consumption to better fit our goals depending on where our BMR really is compared to what a calculator was able to tell us.
As we know, even if we were hooked up to a bunch of fancy machines and surrounded by doctors, we still would only be able to get so close to our actual BMR.
So sometimes we have to work with the calculators a bit.
The same goes for weighing in and tracking progression with your scale. It's usually best to keep an overall weekly average and then work from there to see which direction it's trending.
With that you'll have a better idea of what you need to do with your consumption levels.
