Think of any food log (app or paper/pencil) as simply a tool, nothing more and nothing less. It’s up to you to decide how to use it.

Research continues to show tracking or logging your food in a diary, journal or app is one of the most effective tools for making dietary changes and losing weight.
Using an app? These tips are essential for cultivating an observer mindset while using food tracking apps.
