This study validates my whole approach to weight loss. There is some more discussion here.
I haven't been very good about keeping my food diary of late and I have gained a few pounds back. One of the reasons I get tired of the whole food diary thing, though, is that I have insisted on doing complete calorie calculations, which gets darned tiresome.
The study implies that that might not be necessary. The more you record, the better you are likely to do, but the act of recording may be what puts you over the edge.
Like I might not have had that second handful of yummy M&M Premiums (Triple Chocolate) last night if I had had to record the fact for posterity.
So I am going to try it for a while and see what comes of this easier lighter weight food diary.
