Start Recording Your Habits
Let's go back to Jinny's story for a moment. We found that she ballooned to 221 pounds in high school and she cited that salt, delivery food and snacking as the problem. She began making modest changes to figure out what the root cause was and started reducing unhealthy things from her diet. She started drinking more water, reduced big meals, added more vegetables, ate yogurt as a snack and tracked eating practices. You can do the same. Start earnestly thinking about the things you are eating throughout the day and write it down. You may find that all the sugar from soda and prepackaged meals are subverting your weight. You can use a diet tracking website or app. "You track the times you eat, the foods you eat, portion size, and notes about what you were doing or feeling at the time of eating," heart.org reported.
