THE IMPORTANCE OF JOURNALING
Several studies have shown that people who keep food journals
are more likely to be successful in losing weight and keeping it off.
In fact, a researcher from one recent study says that people
keeping a food diary six days a week
lost about twice as much weight
as those who kept food records one day a week or less.
If you have purchased your journal and it's on the way, you're golden.
Dive in as soon as it arrives! It is an incredibly valuable tool - jam packed with information.
It's not only a food, water, supplement, and exercise tracking journal,
but an encyclopedia, a detailed manual, and a recipe book.
Each chapter of the journal coincides with the topic of each week's class and video.
There are 12 chapters, plus introduction, and 13 total weeks of classes and topics.
If you have not yet ordered your journal , get with your coach - it's $25 plus tax.
The importance of this KEY tool can not be understated!
WHAT DO I DO IF I DON'T HAVE MY JOURNAL YET?
Not everyone has received or ordered their journal yet,
so to make sure you start with the tools you need as soon as possible,
here's a set of pdf files you can use.
PRINT THESE OUT TO MAXIMIZE YOUR RESULTS
First pages, you will want for the very first week you're on the program.
Second pages, you will want for the 7 days of detox week.
Third set you'll want for the remaining 11 weeks
We'll be doing 6 weeks of formal group classes,
the remaining 7 we anticipate to be between you and your coach.
