Use This Strategy to DOUBLE Your Fat Loss Results

For the past week, we've been building the “10 Easy To Do’s for Fat Loss” checklist and as one reader put it,

"Isabel, these are such great reminders. I'm going through the list 1 by 1 and seeing where I am missing that particular element in my life."

If you've missed any of the first 7 "to do's," check them out here:

Effective Strategies for Reaching Your Weight Loss Goals

Today I want to give you 1 more principle that helped me tremendously when I finally lost those extra 30 lbs of fat that I had been struggling to lose for quite a long time.

8. Write it down! Keep a journal of your daily nutrition regimen and exercise strategy for increased success.

Again, I know you've probably heard that one before, but did you know that people who keep an accurate record of what they eat each day DOUBLE their success rate. Yes, DOUBLE their success rate!

Food Journal

Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research in Portland, Oregon conducted a study with 1,700 overweight or obese men and women. One of the co-authors, Victor J. Stevens, PhD, said that participants who kept a record of what they ate while following other weight loss recommendations lost twice as much as participants who didn't keep a food diary. Study participants that tracked their food and beverage intake lost 18 pounds in 20 weeks. Wow!

I can personally say that this made a huge difference in my success not only with losing, but also with keeping off my unwanted weight. In fact, I still have the original spiral bound notebook that I used and carried around with me every day.

For some people, this just sounds like 1 more thing to do, but I assure you, if you just commit to doing this for 14 days, you'll not only see how easy it is, but what an incredible difference it makes in your weight loss efforts.

If you’re not a "write it down" kind of person, we've made it super easy for you to track all of your daily food consumption on our community site, Beyond Diet. There you have the ability to easily type in your food items and use the easy Food Choices list to make sure you are staying within your recommended portions. If you haven't started using your Success Journal yet, check it out today!
