12 Tips on How to Keep a Food Journal ...

I've read recently that keeping a food journal (or a weight-loss/food blog)is a great way to lose weight.

When I write down everything I eat and drink all day, I'm a lot less likely to cheat!

So, I've tried to start journaling what I eat, but it can be a complicated task to begin.

Here are my top twelve tips for keeping a food journal.

1. Get a Portable Journal ...

My first mistake in food journaling was the journal I bought.

I got what was actually an accounting ledger because I loved the layout of the interior sheets...

I thought they'd keep me really organized, and it probably would have, but it was too big to carry with me.

So, my first tip would be to buy a portable, small journal that can fit in your purse.
