Are you one of the millions of people who will be starting a diet on Monday? The most important factor in losing weight is keeping a record of what you eat. In fact, research shows that the mere act of monitoring your food intake reduces the amount you eat!If you are looking for a little help with motivation and with tracking your food intake and/or exercise, there are thousands of websites that offer tools, tips and articles. Here are some free ones for you to explore:

None of the above links implies any personal endorsement by me. Before embarking on any weight loss plan, see your health professional to make sure it is safe for you.
Don't sabotage your healthy eating. It's perfectly normal to hear that voice in the back of your mind screaming, "I want that cookie!" or "I can't stand this lettuce!" That's just your inner brat. Don't let it control you.
