Dear Lifehacker, When I weigh myself on a scale multiple times a day, sometimes I weigh a lot more in the morning than I do at night. I’ve also heard it’s more important to measure fat loss than weight loss, but how do I track that accurately? I want to measure my progress, but I don’t know how. Please help! Thanks, Losing Track
Christmas is a time for indulgent feasts and parties with bountiful booze. That’s great, but if you want to keep off the resulting holiday weight gain, it’s best to prepare. High intensity exercise before meals can give a much-needed metabolic boost.

Not eating while you’re doing other things is pretty standard advice when you’re trying to lose weight or modify your diet, but it’s not just folk wisdom. A study by Bristol University confirms that eating at the screen doesn’t leave you satisfied and might lead you to snack later.
