Food Photo Diaries

Writing about Photo-Dieting

Weightwatchers get you to do trackers: food diaries.

Food diaries help you become more aware of your eating and activity habits, and problem areas. They give you a basis from which to plan changes and set goals, and allow you to look back and see what you’ve changed over time. This can be very motivating.

A food and activity diary will also encourage you to make conscious choices about what you eat and do – writing it down gives you the chance to think twice before you act. This is one of the most useful things you can do to help you gain control your weight. (more)

And they do work. Half of the problem with eating is that you aren’t aware of what it all adds up to.

This is a fabulous idea – and makes great images.

  1. At last I have found you! Went to look for you at your old home a few days ago after a long time away from the blogosphere and was really disappointed to find you had disappeared. Your new home looks fantastic by the way – I too am contemplating a move across to WordPress but still working out the logistics – not as au fait with modern technology as you!
    Also really nice to put a face to the name at last.

    Gosh! Thems’ my photos your talking about there! I’ve lost nine pounds (in eight weeks) without trying too hard so far with the photo-diet project. Some weeks a couple of pounds, weeks when I’ve eaten out too often no loss, but no gains. Writing it down doesn’t really show you what you’ve eaten in the way that photo-dieting does. Nor does it make you pause (to take the picture) before you eat, giving you the chance to decide if you really want to eat it.
