In every weight loss book, every diet method, every everything I read about losing weight, they all say the same thing:
Track what you’re eating.
Count calories, count points, count net carbs, count food exchanges but count something.
There’s a reason for it, you know… Its because those mindless snacks don’t register. The two chocolates I ate? There’s no calories listed on the packaging – they’re individually wrapped. But they were oh so good… and promptly forgotten within minutes of eating them.
On a side note, you have to wonder… how much enjoyment does one get out of something that’s forgotten within minutes of eating it?
So yeah. Back to counting. Tracking. Being honest with what I eat/drink/consume. Only then, when I see it, will I really see it.
Back to tracking my food intake. And I’ll be using Lose It! to do so. My brother in law introduced me to it last year… This year I’ll actually make it work :p
What do you use to track your food consumption?
