- "Dieters who kept a food journal lost twice as much weight as those who didn't record what they ate. - Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research
- "Studies show that people who keep food journals lose more weight and keep more of that weight off in the long run. The National Weight Control Registry-an ongoing research project tracking more than 3,000 people who've lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for five years-found that keeping a food journal is the one strategy used by the majority of successful dieters".
- "In a study of 685 dieters conducted by a health insurance company, the best predictor of weight loss throughout the first year was the number of food records kept per week".
You will get your journal, your little black book, on the first day of class and I will explain how to use it in class. If you are not in boot camp, but would like to journal on your own you can buy one from me or purchase one at most book stores.
