    Good for overall nutrition

    I think keeping a diary isn't only good for weight loss, but is good for overall nutrition. Tracking what you eat gives you a great idea of what you are putting in your body and how much of it. When you can actually see it in front of you, it can be a real eye opener. I think keeping a diary is great for everyone who just wants a really good idea of what they put in their diet. I can't speak for everyone, but I have to say that before I started tracking, I assumed I was eating a lot healthier than I actually was.

    It is a nuisance at first, but once you get used to it and make it a part of your meal, it's not so difficult. The learning curve is always the most annoying part of anything.

    I hear ya char! When I first started tracking I was blown away at how much fat and sugar I was consuming in a day, even when I thought I had been good and cut a lot of it out of my diet. Tracking really gives you a much better idea of how you can control your diet and makes you think twice before you make certain food selections.

    That's very true and honestly a good way to start tracking what you eat and keeping a diary if this is something that you want to do while you are actually working on losing weight.
