According to a study published in the journal Obesity Facts, Sunday and Mondays are the days when people weigh the most. The lowest weights were reported on Friday mornings. The study stated "Everybody's weight follows a predictable weekly rhythm," citing that "you gain a little bit over the weekend and lose a little bit over the week." Anecdotal examination of weekend habits show that people tend to eat larger, more indulgent meals on the weekend and engage in less physical activity.
