Online communities are huge right now. Who would have ever thought that writing what you eat to possible strangers in cyber space could help keep you accountable? If this seems like a far fetched concept, then think about writing your food down in a little book. For most, writing their food intake down (even if its just to be seen by them) will make them cringe. There is something to be said about owning up to what goes into your body. Here’s a way to embrace what you eat.
Twitter is the trendy social networking location for the 140-character blurb about your life, your business, or your opinion. Some have found a use for sharing health advice. A sampling of the diet and fitness related tweeps you can follow are @eatwithoutguilt, @eatthisnotthat, @fitmenu, @fitmotivation, and @fitcoach2007. Another twitter function is Tweetwhatyoueat. Follow this twitter “friend” to create and maintain a food diary (source).
If you think you already eat healthy, then challenge yourself by keeping track of it. You might be surprised at what you see.
