Food writer Don Genova successfully lost some weight with the help of a food journal! Genova recorded each minute detail of his diet and lost 10 pounds over the course of three months due to healthy eating. Food journals are very important for people that have serious health problems related to nutrition. They are important for athletes training for competition as well. Food journals encourage accountability and healthy diets among average people and help towards getting a healthy body. It has also been suggested that instead of counting exact calories or carbs, one should record thoughts and emotions along with the foods eaten. Awareness about what one is eating and why can help with healthy weight-loss.
The main problem with a food journal is that it gets boring, and people are not always honest about what they eat.
