If you’re tracking something (calories, points, carbs, etc.) it’s really important to track AS YOU EAT, not at the end of the day. If you wait, you’re telling yourself it’s okay not to do something that you know you should do, which exercises your giving-in muscle. Plus, if you wait it’s likely you may end up forgetting somethings you ate and/or realize at the end of the day that you’re over calories/points/carbs because you didn’t know where you stood before dinner.
The Beck Diet Program was developed by Dr. Judith S. Beck with Deborah Beck Busis, LCSW.
