I thought of you food bloggers on this one

Snapping Food Pics Can Help You Lose Weight

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that dieters asked to take a picture of everything they ate—before eating—led to better weight loss achievement, according to the
UK's Telegraph.

I call bullshit.  I take pictures of what I eat (er, when I'm not so overwhelmed by the presence of food that I scarf it down and actually remember...  ahem) and according to my scale I'm like 32% fat.  I can no longer fit into my pants and I've gained all my food poisoning weight back and then some.  Bummer.  Obviously, I'm going to have to start dragging my lazy ass on some workouts.  I guess this is what happens when you neglect the "Not too much" aspect of the whole "eat food. not too much. mostly plants" way of life.

And it's from my alma mater! w00t!
I have lost a few pounds lately, but I thought it was due to my CSA veggies, not my photos. Hmmmm.
