I bet you didn’t know that a camera and a pen can speed up weight loss and if you already knew this you are ahead of the curve. As a modeler of cutting edge technology I was recently looking into different types and forms of weight loss aids, tools and techniques. In my search I ran across this article that makes a lot of sense and they claim you can double your fat loss using this technique.

A Camera And A Pen Can Speed Up Weight Loss
As you have probably heard a thousand times, a diet is only good if you stick with it. And the data supports this entirely. In fact, Traci Mann, a UCLA psychologist, found that more than 80 percent of people followed for at least two years gained back more weight than they lost*… and this was for successful dieters!
This is due to some hormonal problems you are now aware of – and basic human nature! We are creatures of habit, and if we don’t create success rituals it becomes really hard to get rid of old habits.
However, there is hope. Below are two of the best research backed methods for staying on track and making weight loss permanent.
Keep a Food Diary
Keeping a food diary can double a person’s weight loss and speed up weight loss, according to a study from Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research**. The findings, from one of the largest and longest running weight loss maintenance trials ever conducted, are something to take seriously.
“The more food records people kept, the more weight they lost,” said lead author Jack Hollis Ph.D., a researcher at Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research in Portland, Oregon. “Those who kept daily food records lost twice as much weight as those who kept no records. It seems that the simple act of writing down what you eat encourages people to consume fewer calories.”
“Keeping a food diary doesn’t have to be a formal thing. Just the act of scribbling down what you eat on a Post-It note, sending yourself e-mails tallying each meal, or sending yourself a text message will suffice. It’s the process of reflecting on what you eat that helps us become aware of our habits, and hopefully change our behavior,” says Keith Bachman, MD, a Weight Management Initiative member.
And now that most phones have cameras, I have found that taking pictures of every meal and then uploading them daily to be highly effective.
