    Taking pictures of everything you eat, before you eat it, may help you lose weight and appear to be more effective than a written food diary according to a study from Lydia Zepeda, professor of Consumer Science, and David Deal at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. Snacking Binges

    Photos reminded people of snaking binges

    “The photographs also acted as a powerful reminder of any snacking binges,” according to an article on The Telegraph.


    Written Food Diaries

    Written food diaries filled in hours later, left less of an impression

    “[W]ritten food diaries were often filled in hours after the meal and were not as powerful in creating an impression of how much food had been consumed,” the article on The Telegraph also notes.


    Portion Sizes

    Photos could also identify large portion sizes

    The article on The Telegraph also notes that a dietician said that photographs could help dieticians identify portion sizes that are too large, and notes that people tend to underestimate how much they eat.


    Photographic Food Diaries

    Photographic food diaries change attitudes and behaviors

    “Qualitative analysis of participant interviews revealed that photographic food diaries can alter attitudes and behaviours associated with food choices, and they are more likely to do so than written diaries because they serve as an intervention at the point when decisions regarding what to eat are being made,” the abstract notes.



    Subjects: 43 people

    The study involved 43 people.
