20 Reasons Why You Just Can’t Lose Weight Yet
Reason #18: You’re not keeping a food journal
I’ve heard many people saying that keeping journals is a kids’ game and they don’t need that in their lives.
However, when it comes to their diet, simply writing down what they eat can work wonders. How?
Firstly, this practice helps you acknowledge how much and what you’re really eating during the day. Many times we end up snacking on the wrong stuff without even realizing (remember binge-eating?).
Once you know how your daily eating schedule looks like, you can start making small positive changes you can adapt to easily. We want to create a healthier lifestyle in the long run, remember?
Lastly, keeping a food journal can help you figure out how many meals you really need. Some people metabolize foods faster, which means they’ll need more meals in smaller quantities distributed throughout the day.
