We’ve all heard about the magic pill, formula, workout, or diet that will give us what we want immediately. In fact there are so many of them out there that have all these promises attached yet after a few weeks we realize we probably won’t get what we want from this magical source.
But out of all the “magical” solutions out there, there is one we highly believe in here at Breakthroughs To Fitness.
In fact it’s actually free and takes about 10 minutes a day.
Do not take this solution lightly as it is the one tool that’s gets people healthy, fit, and lean if you follow it on a daily basis.
That tool is a FOOD DIARY!
I can promise you with full confidence that if you filled out a food diary on a daily basis you will reach your goal. However, just going through the motions of filling it out won’t work. You must go back and analyze your day, week, month and figure out where your challenges ly and where your successes ly.
Keeping track and reviewing your past diary entries will allow you to create or tweak your plan going forward to reach that goal you set forth. It doesn’t have to be some fancy book or expensive online tool. Just a pen and paper or a word doc on your computer will work out great. Simply jot down everything you eat and drink at what times throughout the day. If you can estimate calories that’s great, but you don’t have to be a calorie counter to reach your goals.
If you look at the most successful businesses in the world you will notice what they all have in common: they track everything day in and day out. They know how much money comes in and how much goes out everyday!
Now you don’t have to compare yourself to the most successful businesses. We all have different goals, commitments, and time frames. As long as you keep consistent track, your goals will seem more promising to reach.
So give it a shot and see the difference it makes with your health. Keep food diaries worked for me in getting me below 4% bodyfat, so it will work for you as well.
