Step 1

Keep a detailed food diary

Many individuals who have successfully lost weight agree that keeping a food diary is the most effective thing you can do to lose weight.

We can be surprisingly unaware of what we consume. We tend to eat more and more often than we believe to be the case. This, combined with the fact that sugars, fats and carbohydrates are often hidden in processed foods, cause that we often have no idea how much of what we eat on a day-to-day basis.

Change can only commence once you have an idea of what the current situation is. Keeping a detailed food diary for two weeks is often enough for individuals to start making natural and easy changes to the way they eat.

There are quite a few free apps available on Android and iOS that can assist you in conveniently keeping your food diary.
