Food Diary May Double Your Weight Loss

In April as reported in this blog, a study showed that the Dash diet reduces heart attacks and strokes better than prescription drugs. Now, Kaiser Permanente produced a study with people who kept a food diary and used the guidelines in the Dash diet lost double the weight compared to the other group in the study. The participants also attended a support group and exercised 30 min a day. The bottom line in this recent study demonstrates how perception with eating food is important in losing weight. My personal philosophy is to understand what is the proper portion and eat whatever you crave but only occassionally knowing what is good and bad for you. To read more about this recent study in an article by Kendall Krause, M.D. from ABC News. To get you started, try here or websites with healthy recipies from Fitday.com, and 2000cal.com. A calorie calculator and food database article can be found here.
