Considering weight is something that is important and need to be done to control the weight loss when dieting. However, one also needs to see it with a healthy perspective. That is, weight fluctuations from day to day, even hour to hour is normal. So no need to stress when weight had gone down again increased though not significantly.

"These fluctuations occur because when considering not only muscle and fat mass are calculated, but also liquids, food in the digestive system that is not digested and absorbed, the dirt that has not been disposed of, as well as the storage form of carbohydrate or glycogen in the liver," said Sass.
