Research has proven again and again that people who track lose more weight than those who don't. Making time to track your food, exercise, and weight will expedite your weight loss.
Beyond just numbers, tracking creates awareness and that allows us to be proactive and uncover trends. Consistent tracking provides the information we need to stay motivated and on the right path. The goal of tracking is to make you more aware of what you're eating and how much you're eating, which can help double your weight loss efforts.
It's important to find a method of tracking that works for you, for example, using a pen and paper, taking a photo of your food and logging it when you have more time, etc. Feel free to experiment until you find a method that seems to suit your personality and schedule.
