Writing WILL Help You Lose Weight

Many diet programs and doctors agree that the key to losing weight is writing down everything you eat in a day. (Yes, EVERY SINGLE THING YOU CONSUME.)

I agree entirely. However, I believe that it would benefit you to not only to write down everything you eat (oh, and the first day you might look at it and be thoroughly disgusted), but to be honest with yourself when you write as well. It's really important not to cheat yourself.

Writing down what you eat? - I'd go even further than that.
Once you're in a food-logging routine:
*Write down all of the activity you did during the day.
*Write down all of the water you've consumed that day.

Sometimes I'm shocked as to how little water I've consumed in a day! It's really such an integral part of your daily diet. Yeah, you can be consuming all that fiber you're supposed to in a day... but without water it is not being broken down and therefore is not effective in your diet.

Also, remember... any activity counts! Maybe you didn't make it to the gym or you were too busy to make it to your pick-up game, but nonetheless take note as to how much you walked or ran for the bus or whatever. These add up, and make you feel better at the end of the day as well.

Good luck on your healthy-eating adventures!

New recipes coming up later this week! Check back for updates.

Back to School, Back to EAT

EAT took a hiatus for the summer (since Foodie also took a health-food-hiatus this summer)...

STAY TUNED for new posts to come, just in time for the new school year!
