Food Journaling

If you are really serious about your weight loss journey, you will need to learn more about the food choices you are making. A few ways you can do that are: to learn how to read food labels, do extensive research on the food you’re eating each day or food journal online and let a system that is already designed to HELP you, show you what you need to know (or at least point you in the right direction). Food journaling is essential to weight loss and weight maintenance. If you haven’t yet tried it, I encourage you to at least give it a shot for 2 weeks and go from there.

MyPlate at Livestrong.com is a valuable tool in designing your nutrition plan. Based on your size, goals and activity level, it will determine your caloric needs and allow you to easily enter your food journal, providing instant insight into what you are ingesting. This step is crucial to monitor not only your calories, but also your protein, carbohydrate and fat intake as well. The journal provides daily totals in grams and also a pie chart that shows you immediately your percentage of each. (E-HOw.com)
