Study shows that people who track what they eat, lose more weight!
In the study, done by the Universities of Vermont and South Carolina, 142 participants were asked to log what they ate on an online programme. At the end of the study, those who were the most consistent in logging what they ate lost at least 10% of their body weight.
So, if you did nothing else but record what you ate every day, you could lose 10% of your weight!

Imagine what it can do for you if you're also stepping up your exercise regime and cutting out the junk food!
If you think about it - it makes a lot of sense. How often do you walk into the kitchen and grab a bite, just because it's there? We often don't realise just how much we eat during a full day.
What would 10% less on the scale mean for you?

How to log what you eat for best results
You can use a diet app like MyFitnessPal, FatSecret or Yazio to log what you eat, or you can keep a journal (yes, the pen and paper type!).
List the following info by day:
* The amount you eat eg. 1 potato, 100g steak
* Any extras that came with it eg. salad dressing containing olive oil, balsamic vinegar and herbs
* When you eat eg. 7am breakfast, 10am snack, etc
* Where you eat eg. At desk at work or dining room table, etc.
* Mood or reason for eating, eg. bored, stressed, sad, excited, tired, etc.
For this to work, you must do it in real-time. Don't rely on your memory.
Then, each day, review your journal.
Look for trends eg. you eat when you're stressed or tired. This is important information that you can use to reduce your food intake. For example, eating the right kind of foods will reduce fatigue
, exercising will also help, etc.
You'll also be amazed by how much you actually eat - many people underestimate this part. If you think you may be eating too much, calculate the calories you take in versus the output.
Women trying to lose weight should take in around 1500 calories per day, and men 2000 calories.
Here's to a great body - the easy and naural way!
