5. How often should I check my weight?
You should weigh yourself about once a week. Weighing yourself more often than that will not give you an accurate representation of your progress on the FoodFit Plan. This is for a variety of reasons, including differences in the fluid balance of your body. Try to weigh yourself weekly at the same time of day, on the same scale, wearing the same type of clothing to get a true sense of your progress. Once you have weighed yourself, enter your current weight into the Food and Fitness Diary to track your progress in reaching your goal.

6. What do I do once I reach my goal weight?
Because the FoodFit Plan is a balanced approach to healthy eating, once you reach your goal weight you can continue on the FoodFit Diet Plan to maintain your weight. You will need to take the Profile again so that we can personalize your menu plans at the appropriate calorie level.
