Diet Diary for Weight Loss
A recent study from the American Journal of Preventive Medicine concluded that those who kept a diet diary (food journal) everything they consumed lost twice the weight as those who did not. So start any program with a diet diary!

Many people find that keeping a diet diary will helps them to stay focused on the calories, carbohydrates, proteins and fats they consume. By recording the foods you eat into a diary, you will be able to maintain the healthy eating, track your progress, and also go back and even lost weight.

Keeping a diet diary does not have to be an overly time consuming task and may be easier than you think. You have to stay on top of it by having your meals available at all times, so each time you eat you can add it to the list. If you wait until later in the day or next day, it's easy to forget everything you consumed, especially that chocolate candy there and that cookie there. Those little things add up, so don't leave them out.

There are many reference books and online sources that can be used to calculate proteins, carbs, fats, and calories of foods. Also, you can determine what you're eating by simply check the nutrition labels on the package.

So by tracking your calories and keeping a food journal diary it's easier to make sure you're eating just the right amount to reach your goals. This is the only way you will be able to lose weight and keep it off. Your metabolism is one of the main ways of burning fat to keep you from gaining weight. If you keep it high by eating healthier meals, less calories and smaller meals you will burn excess fat and help in the quest to lose weight.
