Track Snacks: How Logging What You Eat Can Help You Lose Weight

Want to lose weight and get healthy? Keeping a notebook or using an online weight control logger or app can greatly assist your health and weight-loss goals. Writing down and logging what you eat gives you a better understanding of the calories and fat you ingest, as well as food and how much of it. 

There's also a feeling of accountability, since you may think twice about eating that extra snack if you have to write it down. By creating a visual, you can modify your diet and tweak it if need. This will also increase the likelihood that you will keep off those extra pounds and stay healthy!
