do you track your food or keep a food diary?

I am supposed to be doing this with weight watchers. Studies have shown that those who track their food lose more weight..also..it gives you an awareness of what you are eating plus you have to count the points. I find it really hard to do though..I guess I just need to record everything immediately before it becomes too big a chore..scuse me..while I write up my cereal..Do you track your food?

I presently do not but when I did in the past I was always very successful at it and it really helped a lot. I am going to start doing it again.

It is hard for me to keep up with it..but it does help alot..I think it needs to be a habit to eat and immediatley track otherwise it is really easy to put it off to the side.

I gave up weight watcher. I was not happy with it. Today I will start neutrasystem kits bought from walmart. It's based on portion size. So that I am up for right now.

I tried nutrasystem once years ago. I did lose weight on it..but it was expensive and sooner or later you have to go back to the real world.

@snowy22315 Yes I am using it as a stepping stone to smaller portions.
