Recipe of the Day or a Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day
Journaling is the single best predictor of whether a person willlose weight or not, and make Lifestyle Changes. People who journal, lose twice as much weight as those that don’t!! Most people have no idea how much food they eat on any given day. We grab and go, multitask, mindlessly eat while watching television and when asked what we ate, have virtually no remembrance. It is impossible to estimate how much we have eaten. That is why it is so difficult to lose weight.
