    I do. It really helps me to see what I've eaten, and stay within my points. I'm on the WW program.

    As an bodybuilder, I've have to and have been keeping a foods logs as long as I can remember...I still have my foods and training logs from 2001 LOL

    Foods & training logs are crucial for anyones wanting to lose weight and get in better shape. They will be your memory. With thems you can from week to week see what works best for you and what doesn't.

    yes. It's been a key for the times when dieting for me works. That and exersize and eating enough protein to stave off the shakes in meals and snacks.

    I keep track in my head. I try to allow 300 calories for breakfast, 300-400 for lunch, and 300-400 for dinner, plus 200 for snacks. I shoot for 1200-1300 calories a day. Some days I am more active, and just get hungrier, so I might allow myself 1,500.

    Yes I'm doing Weight Watchers and its the only way I make it through the day on program - I conveniently forget points if I don't write it down.

    I did at first but don't as much anymore.

    When I started losing weight I did write down everything I ate and drank because there was more of it and it was more erratic. I found it very useful for controlling myself as I didn't want to have to write certain things down! Also it heloped me to get into a set routine of eating.

    Now I have 3 or 4 different things that I have for breakfast and lunch so I don't need to write it down as it's the same amount each time.

    I do write down in my diary what I have for dinner, this helps me to meal plan and kepp track for weight management purposes.

    I always make a note if we eat out, have alcohol or snacks. Again this is for both financial and dietary purposes.

    Sometimes. Usually if I feel I need to lose a few pounds or if I have had a run of unhealthy weeks I keep a log so that I can track where my weaknesses are and then try to work on them.
