Yeah, saw it on Yahoo News. It's soooo not news - Weight Watchers has been doing it for over 10 years.

peertrainer was built on this concept, not news to us either. We took the extra step of combining the diary with the group. People seem to find it helpful!

Despite being 'old news' it's still helpful to remind people of how beneficial it is.

Lots of oldies but goodies are 'new' to those just beginning this journey.

Yeah, but it was just on the evening news. They're supposed to be a bit more current than that.

Most of this information is bound to be some form of rehash HOWEVER, I think this kind of link is useful. It's a reminder to hang in there and keep doing it. Wash Post is a well written resource.

I am convinced that keeping food diaries keeps us conscious about what we are eating. That's why it works so well.

So thanks for the link OP....I appreciate good preaching to the choir.

Hah, It was news to me so thanks for posting this! I'm still new to some of the in's and out's of weightloss and this might be helpful for me, and a friend of mine that I've been trying to get information for.
