Keep A Holiday Diet Journal:
If you don’t already keep a diet journal, this holiday season is the perfect time to start. When people write down what they eat, they are likely to consume fewer calories. Keeping a journal is a great way to stay organized and feel empowered. People who recorded their food intake lost twice as much as those who did not keep track of their food.
You tend to be more mindful of what you’re eating when you are held accountable. You can write it down, share with a friend, or use a food journal app… any of these will make you more aware of your choices and cause you to think twice before making an unhealthy decision.
