If you are not keeping yourself accountable for your exercise and diet regimen you may not be successful in losing weight.  From past experience, the people that I have worked with have been far more successful with their weight loss when they were keeping “tabs” on their eating.  You must keep records on how many calories you consume from carbohydrates and protein with each meal each day.

Records are important because they serve as a reminder and instant feedback to any questions you may have when asking “why” you are or are not losing weight.  If you do not keep records it will be impossible to get information on what and how much you are eating; therefore, you will not know when it is necessary to change your diet or exercise regimen.  Records are the guide to success when is comes to a sound nutrition and eating plan.

When dieters begin to take record of their diet they begin to be held to a higher standard of living.  Dieters will eat better.  This is more likely because they are organized and can see the actual progress they are making. Your food journal should look like this:

Meal #1 – Meal #6: (Time of day & carb/protein/vegetable listed)

Total Calories for the Day:_______
