You want to lose fat fast and keep it off?
Easy answer-keep a food journal.
I’ve used the food journal as the cornerstone of our program for years, because it works.
Using a food journal does so many things that drive you to success.
1) It helps you plan ahead
2) It creates awareness
3) It increases accountability
4) It allows you to trouble shoot what’s working and what’s not
I love the food journal. We’ve used a simple written journal in our program for the last 5 years.
About 2 years ago I started hearing about the phone apps that allowed you to track your food. I have one simple rule -if it’s new I don’t trust it.
Now I’ve had enough clients who have used the apps and gotten great results. I’m comfortable recommending them for fat loss-because they’ve been proven to work.
I’m putting 3 of the best I’ve found out there. But remember the best one for you is the one you’ll use.
I’ll start with the app I’m most familiar with and that we use in our Road Warrior program.
This is the app that made me a believer. This app allows you to create a daily calorie budget and monitor your food and physical activity. You can email your daily intake to your coach or download and print it. Very fast and simple set up.
Millions of food and restaurant choices, everything you need is right here.

My Fitness Pal-
Not as hand on familiar with this one-but, I’ve has clients successfully transitioning to this from our written journal.
This iPhone and Android app helps you set your daily calorie goals, record your food and physical activity. It works together with MyFitnessPal.com account, where you can log you food and exercises.
The database for foods is insanely large. Over a million foods and restaurant choices.

I love weight watchers. especially since they changed their system last January. Allowing for fruits and vegetables to be “0” points. This makes sense and because all calories are NOT equal. Now you’re encouraged and rewarded for eating real food(apple) and avoiding processed junk(100 calorie snack packs).
They have a super supportive community, and you’ll never run out of recipes.

Here’s the important thing to remember-all diets work. When you do them. The hard part is doing them.
Everyone of these apps will work you just have to use it.
