It’s four weeks in and so far most of you are crushing it! But for those of you who are still for some reason chilling in the dark, Accelerate is running a weight loss challenge with the wonderful Ask Damz. Watch the following for all the juicy details:
We know that not everyone is on the AskDamz programme (but if you’re not, you might want to change that because it’s truly awesome) so we’re giving helpful tips every week to help make this challenge a little easier.
Last week we talked about snacking and how to do it right. And this week is all about monitoring what you eat AKA keeping a food diary!
Studies have found that dieters who regularly record what they eat lose more weight than those who don’t. It doesn’t matter how you do it—in a notebook, on the computer, or with an app on your phone—as long as you record your intake consistently and honestly (including even condiments and tastings you may take while cooking). This simple act makes you more accountable for what you eat and helps you see patterns in your eating habits that may be contributing to weight gain.
And there you have it. Run out now, buy yourself a little diary and pen, start keeping track of what you eat and watch yourself begin to shed the pounds!
Check back this time next week for your next tip!
