Your weekly challenge this week is to keep a food journal for ONE week!

If you feel like you've pulled out all your slim-down stops, don't write off weight loss just yet. Find out how writing a food journal can help you lose weight and make you happier, too!

Most people think of weight loss as a formula: healthy food + exercise = weight loss. So, why then, is the scale still not budging even though you’re doing everything right? It’s probably because the weight loss industry doesn’t teach us the secret ingredient that’s vital for a healthy life and healthy body: our minds.

We often overeat not because our body is demanding it, but because our brain is. Stress, powerful emotions, and lack of sleep all lead us to dip our hand into the cookie jar or to order the burger instead of the salad. Simply put: being in tune with our mental state makes us more in tune with the rest of our body. But how exactly do you find out what’s going on up there to lose weight down below?

Thankfully, there’s a super simple brain hack. It’s called a food journal and it’s time you get writing.
