Our expert says:
I'd caution against looking at the scale every few days. If you want my opinion, I'd say weigh yourself once every 3 to 4 weeks and forget the number the rest of the time. You must remember that your body mass will fluctuate quite widely from one day to the next - a 1kg swing is not out of the ordinary, and so to me, this 0.6kg is insignificant. The other thing is that you can expect some mass gain during training, because you increase muscle mass, and you also increase the volume of blood as a result of training. These two combined can easily cause you to increase by 1 to 2kg. But they are good responses, and you should not be discouraged by them. Rather ignore mass and train for fitness - if you get fitter, then you'll get leaner and lighter too.
