FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Food diaries are a "powerful self-management technique. They help you figure out where the extra calories are coming from," he says. It works best if someone else looks over your food record. "When you put yourself in a position where you are accountable for your behavior, it changes behavior. . .

Dawn Jackson Blatner, a registered dietitian in Chicago, tells people that a food diary "is the best way to monitor every crumb, morsel, nibble, sip, swallow and bite you take" (from "Using Food Diaries Doubles Weight Loss, Study Shows," Nanci Hellmich, http://www.usatoday.com/, July, 2008).
