The Importance of Keeping a Journal When Dieting

Visual of girl writing a diet journalWhen we write down what we do each day, we will know:
  1. How many empty foods we are eating
  2. How much we are not exercising


The merits of writing down our daily activities are the following:
  1. Knowing how much excess food we eat subconsciously
  2. Knowing how well or poorly we balance our nutrition
  3. Knowing which of our habits are leading us to weight gain
  4. Knowing the relations between out eating habits and lifestyle
  5. Knowing our personal balance between calorie consumption and calorie intake
  6. Preventing overeating
Regardless, gaining weight is caused by excessive calorie intake. Do you know how many calories you can get from soft drinks, juices, alcohol, cakes and sweets? Do you know how many calories exceed your daily limit?
It is said that when we have the craving to eat something but are not really hungry, the feeling will subside in 5 minutes. Also, we sometimes feel hungry when we are actually thirsty. When you feel this craving, it is best to drink a small amount of water or tea then wait 5 minutes to see if this feeling subsides.

  1. What is a fad diet? Fad diets can be best described as a quick means of weight loss that are often only popular for a brief period of time. Fad diets can range from methodologies as deeply entrenched as Atkins and the Zone diet or as unsustainable as the cabbage soup diet or the Special K Challenge diet.
