If you're serious about losing weight, the first order of business is to be conscious of what you eat. That's where The Low-Carb Day Planner comes in. You can't make real changes in your diet, changes that will lead to long-term weight loss, if you don't watch what you're putting in your mouth. After all, during some part of every day - perhaps even the majority of every day! - most of us aren't concentrating on what we're eating. At the same time that we're eating, we're also working, talking, scurrying somewhere, supervising kids, reading, worrying, watching television, or being occupied by any number of other pursuits that distract us from our hands moving food to our mouths.
So, begin to raise your food-awareness quotient by logging everything you eat in this planner. Each day of the week includes places for you to track the times you ate, what you ate, your location, your emotional state, and how hungry you were (on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the least hungry). Each day also has a convenient box for you to log your daily intake of carbohydrate, protein, fat, and calories and the amount of time you spent on exercise. At the end of each week, there's a box for you to enter your weight at week's end and the total number of pounds you've lost. At the end of each month, there's a box to track how you're doing by recording your current measurements and those from when you began your diet, your beginning weight, your current weight, and the total number of pounds that you've lost.
Remember, this planner is your best tool for successfully losing weight. But it's only as good as the information that gets recorded. Use it (the planner) and lose it (the weight)!
