That could add up to gaining a pound every 3½ days.

Call to Action:

Track what you eat in a food log for 5 to 7 days to get an accurate picture of where you need to make some changes in order to cut down on unhealthy, high-caloric foods.

  1. I actually have done this in the past. It’s an eye-opener, indeed!!

    Story: I had two granddaughters visiting me a couple of years ago. They both have a few “extra pounds”. I decided to take advantage of the 6-week visit and have them lose a few pounds while they were staying with me, so they had to count their calories, too. During their stay, their mother had a birthday. I bought a small cake, put a candle on it and we sang Happy Birthday into the video camera and then emailed the video to her. Eating the cake was “off limits” so they chose to walk an extra 2 hours on the treadmill in order to eat the cake. They said it “was worth it”! (LOL)

    1. Thanks Gail for sharing your story. It is so important today to have children be aware of what and why they are eating certain foods. We have to train this area of their lives just like we do other areas and I know I’m talking to the choir with you.

      To your wellness and your granddaughters,
      Lynn
