Yeah, log your food religiously is the tool. I used to log my food when I think I doing good. When I blew it, I just too scare to log, to see the number of cals that I ate. Then it became a series if blown off days. I gain back the weight I lost.
If I don't log my food, I could eat 1200 cals for breakfast.
This time, one of my goal is log everything I ate, no matter what. So far so good.
Let stick with it.
