If you bite it, write it! If you drink it, ink it!

Research shows that for people interested in losing weight, keeping a journal can be a very effective tool to help change behaviour.

  • Record weights of food – remember to measure
  • Be honest
  • Record times you eat
  • Where are you eating?
