If it seems as though you’re eating right but the weight isn’t coming off, one explanation could be that you’re overlooking some food splurges you’re making. If you’re sticking to a calorie count in an effort to maintain or lose weight, one little snack binge can throw you off track.
Yoga.Eat.Run. advises keeping a diary in order to get a handle on your food intake. A record of what you eat daily, annotated with results from regular weigh-ins, helps you evaluate which diet decisions work best for you. The act can be tedious and guilt-inducing at first, but can help deliver the results you’re after.
Just making the effort to maintain the diary can stifle your urge to overindulge. A flash-forward to the guilt of having to tell your food diary of your sins may be enough to keep you from making the mistakes in the first place.
