Did you know that of those who lose weight successfully, EIGHTY percent use a food journal. Here’s the problem: food journals are TORTURE. Food journals are the GESTAPO! Food journals KILL HAPPINESS!
Now that I got that out of the way, let me say: the only thing that has ever worked for me in achieving permanent weight loss is a food journal. But…I found a GREAT one! A happy one! An EASY one! It’s the Hummer of all online food journals (and I’ve looked into a lot of them!)
It really is quite intuitive and has a HUGE data base of foods – including franchise restaurants. So, the other day when I splurged in the afternoon on a Iced Vanilla Coffee at Starbucks, I was able to know immediately how many calories it cost me and how I could cut back in other areas. It gives you a detailed report at the end of the day and has countless graphs and reports so you can easily track your progress. It’s very much like having a friend along with you on the journey – a very smart, very organized friend.
