It’s that time of year where people are scrambling to get back to a routine after the holiday cheer. I find the best way to cut out the junk that has crept into our diets over the past month is to journal what you are eating. We easily fall into habits of more sugar, alcohol and mindless nibbling over the holidays. Journaling helps bring awareness back to what we are putting into our mouth. Interesting study about journaling below.

Study of nearly 1,700 participants shows that keeping a food diary can double a person’s weight loss. The study, which will appear in the August issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found that the best predictors of weight loss were how frequently food diaries were kept and how many support sessions the participants attended. Those who kept daily food records lost twice as much weight as those who kept no records.
