Food Diary/Calorie Tracking
According to the results of an August 2008 study in the
American Journal of of Preventative Medicine, keeping a
food diary (writing down everything you eat and drink)

less per week for six months in the study.
So keep a daily food journal to be accountable and to be aware of meeting the daily calorie intake recommended in your Gruve Online Personalized N.E.A.T. plan.
