Keep a Food Journal
Keeping a tally of all the calories you consume in a day is an effective way to help you stay on track. Studies show that dieters who keep food journals lose more weight. Track your caloric intake on your iPhone with one of these apps, or use a journal if you prefer pen and paper. Not only will a food journal keep you on top of your calorie intake, but it will also keep you accountable for the kinds of food you are eating.
