Weight Loss Strategy: The National Institute of Health's Food Journal Project

If you think that taking the time to write down what you eat each day is cumbersome, boring and too hard to do, then you may want to read this:

The National Institute of Health (NIH) assembled a group of 1600 obese people and asked them to write down everything they ate at least 1 day per week.

Slowly, people began recording meals once a week and sometimes more often. Some even started a daily food log and it soon became a habit.

The regular food log group soon found themselves looking at their entries and began finding patterns. The 10AM snackers began keeping apples and bananas at their desk and slowly began replacing junk food with healthy food in all their meals.

The researchers hadn't suggested any of these behaviors but the simple act of food journaling led to folks who kept daily food journals lose twice as much weight as anyone else. 

This week, let's create a food journal for our own heath.

PS: Research has repeatedly revealed that sharing the weight loss journal with a close friend/family member increases the effectiveness of the initiative even further! 

Shaklee has a wonderful program and mobile app of an easy to log food diary and workout diary that really helps you to track how you are doing.

Combine that with an endless amount of support from not only Shaklee, but your sponsor as well as thousands of others across the globe who are all going through the same thing.
