For Weight Management, write it down! When it comes to keeping close tabs on your diet, perhaps it's time to become your own disciplinarian. Unless you're a zillionaire movie star, your personal trainer probably cannot be at your side 24 hours a day to make sure you are eating the proper foods. So, there's a simple way to insure that you are behaving on your diet. Start logging your daily food consumption in a journal.

Create three columns in your journal and label them "food," "calories," and "fat grams." For each day, you will specify exactly what you've eaten, how many calories it consists of, and how many fat grams are stored within the meal. If you would like to be even more detail-oriented, make another column and call it 'time of day.' This way, you can monitor any stumbling blocks caused by late-night binges or oversized meals.

By keeping tabs on your diet through the use of such a journal, many experts have determined that this method promotes healthy eating and stressed the old sentiment, "You're only cheating yourself." Subconsciously, the dieter who decides to sneak that late-night slice of pizza knows that he or she will have to write it down. Thus, he thinks twice about sneaking a cheat. Also, logging your nutritional intake can help you to monitor certain tendencies and patterns, allowing you to make conscious changes in your eating habits.

You'll soon find that satisfying those hunger pangs in the evening is much easier to manage. Through light snacks, you'll control your evening calorie intake with healthier foods which will leave your body satisfied until the morning.
