I have always thought that keeping a food journal was a great way to lose weight. Yes, it might seem a bit obsessive to write down everything you consume, but it sure will make you accountable for the calories you consume.
A new study by Kaiser Permanente backs up my theory. They found that participants who kept food journals lost more weight than those who did not. The dieters who wrote down everything they ate or drank six days a week (even food journaling demands a day off) lost twice as much weight as the dieters who only tracked their food only one day a week.
