track of what you eat.
Keeping a daily food “log” of
what you eat can help identify eating habits and foods that you
want to control. It can also provide motivation to not eat things
(like snacks) if you know that you’ll have to write it
in your log.
There are many web sites
that allow you to input the foods (or choose from a list) and
it helps to calculate and track your total calorie (and sometimes
fat) intake. This can provide even greater incentives once you
see how much different foods and portions can add up.
In the words of
my Dad, “Use it in the best of health!”
