One guideline for the MedAsian Diet is to make yourself accountable. One way you can do this is by keeping a weight, measurement, exercise, and food diary. By writing this information down on a daily basis you can see what your true eating habits are, why you eat when you eat. (in my case I eat when I am bored or stressed. Comfort food anyone?). It can also help you see the progress you are making and help motivate you to do it all again the next day. I have found that by recording my daily eating and exercise it makes me be truthful about what I put in my body and on occasion has stopped me from eating things I shouldn’t, and has made me get up off the couch and walk that mile! In other words make myself accountable!
