Keep Journal to Lose Weight

If you are looking for the best way to lose weight,  keep  journal! This is what experts suggest.

The Italian newspaper La Stampa reported that an American doctor named Mosunic, describes keeping journal as a kind of doing exercise. He claims that if you  keep jornal, you will be aware of what you eat and how many calories you gain during a day and this will help you lose weight.

Doctor Mosunic stated that you need to write down anything you have within a day to succeed losing weight with this method. He also pointed that it is even more helpful when you share your journal with someone. You will realize how honest you areboth to yourself and to others.

As a teacher, I know keeping journal has numerous benefits on teaching profession. You have a chance of observing yourself, criticising or praising your work in this way. And it helps you a lot with future students, classes and activities, thus with your professional improvement.

    I agree, i think at the beginning of a weight loss program it is important to track exactly what you eat. Great post!

    I currently have an Exel spreadsheet as my journal – unfortunately, I keep changing it’s start date. It starts again on Monday! :) Let’s see what happens…

      Isn’t it the same for anyone who intends to lose weight? I think the problem is the day, Monday! Let’s try it on Tuesday:)

    I am a clinical psychologist and have also conducted research in health psychology. I really like this post and think that a weight loss journal is important for exactly the reasons you describe. It keeps you honest because you have to face what you’ve eaten and be accountable. You can’t pretend that it didn’t count. Also, it can help you to figure out what triggers you to overeat. Are you more likely to overeat when you are hungry or tired, going out and celebrating, watching tv, or working on a deadline? What foods do you overeat? Knowing your triggers can help you make changes to reduce temptation. Thank you for a great suggestion and delicious recipes1

    Yes its very true that one should keep track of all the things Calorie intake/ burn through any sources/resources . As one can become aware how exactly he/she needs to proceed and also whether he can become able to meet his/her goal or not. Otherwise people can not make control over there temptations or carvings and eat the things which they should not eat otherwise. Also it would be better to start the tracking from Monday or first of the month because of human psychology .
