A great way to begin the process of adopting a healthy lifestyle is to write down everything that you eat during the day.  This may take some time to get used to doing but it's a great way to track exactly what you are eating every day.  The reason that I do this is so at the end of the day I can look back to see what I ate and if it was really necessary.  You can also look back on what I call my food journal to see what you ate on successful days when you are struggling which can help to get you back on track.  A lot of times we will eat when were not really hungry at all and writing down what we eat will stop us for a moment and let us think to ourselves if were eating because were hungry or for other reasons.  4 years later since I began my weight loss journey I still write down everything that I eat every day which has helped to keep me on track.


  1. I think people don't realize that since this is a lifestyle, it still takes the same steps to maintain as it did to lose the weight. I was reading some reviews this morning of the program and one person claimed to gain 13 pounds the first week! I am really wondering what in the world they ate! Thanks for your daily "boost"!

  2. Hello pcchefjane you are exactly correct about doing the same steps to maintain as it does to lose the weight. That is crazy and hard to believe that they gained 13 pounds in the first week.
