Food journaling is a huge, evidence based, validated tool for helping people recognize and re-calibrate their physical hunger and fullness cues.

The act of writing down every thing you eat will keep you aware and thinking about why you are eating. Ask your self a simple question... why am I eating? Am I hungry, bored, stressed, lonely or depressed?

An honest look at why you are eating can help you to maintain your weight through the holiday season.
