We've all heard the importance of keeping a food journal when one is trying to lose weight, but if you're like me, your food journal probably has its share of missing days. Maybe you cheated a little and decided just not to record these transgressions and start up again tomorrow. Again, if you're like me, these gaps tend to get bigger until the journal is just sort of abandoned. That's what inspired The Diet Project. Instead of keeping the journal to yourself, you share it with other people who are in the same situation as you are. You can also share articles, ideas, recipes, encouragement for others, and, of course, updates on your own progress. It's a little bit like going to Weight Watchers meetings, except you don't have to pay.


The main idea is to post what you eat every day. However, you don't have to do this to join; you can post as much or as little as you want.

Be honest when you post what you've eaten for the day--don't leave out anything, whether big (tub of Cool Whip with a milkshake chaser) or small (peppermint candy from someone's desk)

I'm sure that one thing your dog did is very cute, but please stay on topic: diet, exercise, and healthy living.

Larger posts, such as articles and recipes, should be posted as LJ cuts.

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. This isn't just about being nice to others, but to yourself as well. Stay positive!
