Many of us may have trouble keeping our weight-loss goals; but there are ways to help us to reach the goals: track your food intake, physical activities and weight regularly.
Tracking your food intake can help you identify the pattern of
- What you eat,
- How you eat,
- When you eat, and
- Recognizing where improvements can be made
By tracking your food intake, you can know where problems lay and improve on that area to achieve your weight loss goal. You might realize you eat too many snacks between meals, or you don’t drink enough water.
