Writing down the foods you eat during the day is a proven method to promote weight loss and to help keep the weight off. It is a simple task that can help you understand your eating habits and target problem areas you may have.
Here are 10 reasons why it’s simply smart to use the BE Bariatric Food & Fitness Journal
1.Keeps you accountable – it sounds crazy, but having to write it down makes you *not eat* those Hershey Kisses
2.Shows you your habits – you may not notice how often you eat peanut butter from the jar until it’s in writing
3.Helps you track your program – you will see good patterns and the holes to patch, such as not enough water
4.Help you to see what works – does a protein drink for breakfast stop your late night snacking?
5.Help you to see what doesn’t work – does not taking lunch from home decrease your pounds lost?
6.Makes your goals seem more real – writing down total pounds gone is a proud moment <<YAY!!!>>
7.Shows you are serious about your health – *not dying* becomes more important as we mature
8.Helps you keep track of your vitamins – the nature of our surgery creates terrible deficiencies; just take the vitamins!
9.Helps you keep track of your workouts – No Movement is the cause of widespread bariatric regain. Choose a workout & DO IT.
10.Helps you keep track of your motivation – involvement increases motivation! Looking the other way created our MO.
