Smart Moves With Your Smart Phone
There are several apps that you can use to log your food, like My Fitness Pal and Lose It. Keeping track of your intake throughout the day can be a relatively quick way to keep your food journal. That’s one smart move. What about days that are so packed you don’t have time to record your foods and fluids until the end of the day? Another smart move is taking a picture of the food and fluids you have throughout the day. When we depend only on our memories, we tend to remember things in our favor and not necessarily the reality. For instance, researchers studied a group of nuns to see if they could accurately report the amount of food they had eaten. Pictures of the meals were taken before and after the meals were eaten. Guess what? The nuns were not too accurate about what they had eaten! Even the best of us need help to accurately recall what we’ve eaten. This is a case where a picture is worth a thousand recollections. Hope you have some smart moves to use today!
