Just for the record, most diet and fitness experts can't say enough about the benefits of journaling when trying to lose weight. After all, what better way to keep track of your successes and failures than by logging it all?

It's a tool that comes in handy when you're recording both your eating and exercise habits. When it comes to food journaling, you should record every morsel that goes into your mouth - even if it's a nibble of a cookie here and a couple of potato chips there. By keeping track of what you're eating, you'll get a better idea of your caloric intake. Not sure why you haven't lost those last five pounds? Maybe you're not accounting for everything you eat. In the event you hit a weight-loss plateau, you can look back and see what foods could be preventing you from losing.
