Is it just me or does this whole article look like a diet plan?
This article has some nice guidelines in it, but implying that the MOST successful way to lose weight is by using a log and recording everything is misleading.
For example, people who have anxiety or suffer from "all or nothing" syndrome often find that logging everything eventually triggers them to fall OFF the bandwagon. Also, what about sensible eating strategies for life? I don't know about you all, but if I'm not planning on keeping a calorie log for life, I shouldn't be using one now, according to established psych theory on the subject.
Also, get real with the fat and alcohol. I drink twice a week or so and it is a relaxing way to remind me that I am prisoner to no diet.
