A new study has shown that taking pictures of your food is more effective than keeping a diet journal. These dieters counted calories much more effectively and were less likely to overeat.
The thinking behind this is that by photoing your meals you are immediately aware of the food that you are putting into your mouth. Which may help to discourage unhealthy eating immediately, rather than after the fact, with those who log their meals in a journal. This technique helps to rid dieters of guilt and helps them to become responsible about the food they are putting into their bodies.
