Keep a Food Diary
Keeping a tally of all the calories you consume in a day is an effective way to help you stay on track. Studies show that dieters who keep a food diary lose more weight. Track your caloric intake on your iPhone with one of these apps, or use a diary if you prefer pen and paper. Not only will a food diary keep you on top of your calorie intake, but it will also keep you accountable for the kinds of food you are eating.
