Keeping a food journal is another great way to be accountable for your health and fitness goals. Everything you eat should be recorded-even the scraps you take off your kid’s plates and the spoonfuls you taste while cooking. Exercise is important, but without a healthy and balanced diet, your weight-loss goals will not be fully achieved.
Keeping a food journal can be done in many ways. Keep it old school with a notebook and a pen. If you like your smart phone my favorite app is “My Fitness Pal”-an easy calorie counter and diet tracker. These are great ways to keep track of your diet.
