Write down what you eat for a full week and analyze all the bad food that you can eliminate from your diet. Remove these food items from your sight or throw them out completely if you are serious about losing weight.
Overweight individuals that have no idea why they keep adding on weight have no excuse as to not knowing what they eat or consume everyday, including the types of liquids they drink.
It is very important to keep a food log to help you lose the weight (this is very similar to the process of professional bodybuilder keeping a workout log). When you take on any kind of serious commitment whether it is work, exercising, dieting, or creating new recipes, there needs to be record keeping. Log it, and push forward.
