Keep a Diary

For the month of June we are counting down 30 Days to Summer with registered dietitian Stefanie Senior. Each day she will reveal a new tip to help you reach your summer health goals. Join the conversation through Live Right Now's Facebook Event, "30 Days to Summer" and share your own tips and successes or post questions and feedback. We will enter your name into a draw for a free Skype nutrition consultation with Stefanie.


June 10th ... 21days to summer...


Keep a detailed food diary online or on your phone. If your ultimate goal is weight loss, then this step is crucial to your long-term success. It will be beneficial even if your goal is weight maintenance. It helps you to stay accountable for your food choices, eating patterns and portions; learn more about the foods you eat, and identify areas that need improvement. I recommend keeping a food diary on myfitnesspal.com or eatracker.ca. If technology isn't your thing, try Live Right Now's paper log.
