    I have kept a food diary for the last year and a bit and it helps ( I'm on my 3rd notebook now lol ). It helps me keep track of what I'm eating, helps me pin point any potential blips etc. Some people keep a diary online, but I prefer to have a note book in my kitchen. Every time I eat something, it gets written down. Before I go to bed at night, I write down what I plan to have the next day for my meals and stick to it.
    Research has shown that people who keep food diaries will consistently lose weight, and those who continue with their food diaries once they get to their target, will maintain that weight loss.
    Word of advice though. A food diary will only help if you are honest about what you are eating. If you *forget* to write in anything then it defeats the purpose of the diary :)

    i go on another site called 'my fitness pal' and on there is a daily food tracker were you can add food from lists or submit your own,
    it tells you how much fat,carbs,protein etc that you have eaten.
    it also has an excercise bit that you fill in and it adds this to your daily charts.
    i find it helps me see were im going wrong
