Looking to DOUBLE your weight loss results in time for summer? You may want to consider keeping a journal, and no, not the type that you spilled your secret crush to as a teen. I’m talking about a food journal. Food journaling is not a new concept by any stretch, but there’s a reason that it’s still so popular: it’s tried and true. Research shows that keeping a food journal can double your weight loss results! If everything is in writing, you have no choice but to face the music and own up to every single thing you put into your body…those five Oreos you scarfed down last night, are not such a secret anymore.
With Memorial Day weekend only a week away, we want to help you start summer right. If you COMMIT to sending us your food journals, we will commit to reviewing them and giving you personal feedback at the end of the week. Yep, like your very own mini nutrition consultation for free!
Here’s how it works:
1. Start your food journal and keep track of every bite, sip, and snack every day (no calories, carbs, or any other numbers needed- just the food and the amount of it).
2. Send your food journal to firstname.lastname@example.org at the end of EVERY DAY between now and Friday, May 24 with the subject ‘[Your Name] Food Journal.’
3. At the end of the week, we’ll give you personal feedback on how to live your most Nutritious Life based on your weekly eats.
Helpful hint: If you’re more of a pen-and-paper type of journaler, here’s a helpful printout to use. But please make it easy on us and type your journal into the body of the email (no attachments please!)
Everyone is a winner! As long as you send your food journal in every day, you’ll receive feedback. Just remember, you’re only cheating yourself if you omit things. So get writing, and get your summer started on the right track to your most Nutritious Life.
