Wendy’s Weekly Weight Loss Tips – Photo Diary

Instead of writing down how much you eat every day, take a quick snapshot with your phone.

WHY? – This will serve as a more accurate reminder of what you have eaten. Quickly jotting down that you have had a ‘healthy’ salad may not look so saint-like when you see that it is piled high with potato salad, coleslaw, croutons and blue cheese dressing!

You may also get a better understanding of you portion size.  Again, writing in a notepad that you have just eaten a vegetable and Feta frittata sounds positively virtuous, unless you failed to mention that  you ate a slice the size of your head!

On the flip side, you may find that your picture diary is showing your complete understanding of the 5-a-day concept.

Also look at how many different foods you have on your plate – which, if you have been reading my tips, should be a small 9″ plate – as the more foods you have on your plate the more you will be likely to eat.

Let me know how you get on! Good Luck.

I have been a Personal Trainer for about 23 years and I still love training and the buzz it gives me but writing has always been a part of my life. I think I wrote my first book at the age of 10. My grandmother said I would be a novelist one day and she was right - as all grandmothers often are! I live with my boyfriend Carl, we have 2 huskies who make us laugh every day, except when pulling us into bushes to chase after squirrels! I have also written a Diet and Fitness book for women over 40.
