Writing it down to lose

Maintaining a daily food diary has long been a vital component of Lindora’s Lean for Life program, and a study cited in The Wall Street Journal demonstrates why. Researchers in Chicago studied eating habits over the holidays, and found that, on average, participants gained 500% more weight during holiday weeks than during other weeks, while those who maintained consistent food diaries actually lost weight during the holidays. The awareness and accountability that results from maintaining a daily food diary is significant. Putting pen to paper every time you eat something is a powerful reminder of what, when, and how much you’re eating.
