I agree. When you track everything, you then are aware. Awareness causes you make yourself accountable for what you've eaten. It then makes you want to be more disciplined when/if you go overboard on any foods.
Some tips on healthy choices.
1)Keep a healthy snack in your purse, at work, and in the car for when you get a fast food craving
2)Never go shopping while hungry and try not to shop with your children
3)Keep only healthy foods in the house
4)Allow yourself a little something that you can't resist at a minimal level. Only allow yourself a treat maybe once a month or so. Don't completely deprive, otherwise the craving can get too much to resist, then if you're like me, you can go overboard when you cave in.
5)Look at the calories and ingredients of the unhealthy foods so that you will be helped to remember why it is important to resist it as much as possible.
