If you are looking to shed some weight, writing down what you eat is an important habit to have. Journaling can make you more aware of what you are eating and less likely to overeat or eat the "wrong" foods. Some journaling apps we recommend are Lose It and My Fitness Pal. Both of these app have free versions that you can use to start tracking your food intake today.
