Lose Weight With Your Smartphone

Read Transcript

Hi, I'm Dr. Miller. Did you know that your smartphone's camera can help you loose weight? Just use it to snap a picture of everything you eat for a week. Two things will happen when you document every bite, you'll eat healthier foods, and you'll eat less than usual. Why? Seeing a real life picture of what you're about to put in your mouth, makes you think twice before you bite.

Unlike keeping a food journal where you jot down what you eat after you've eaten it, taking a digital photo before you eat gives you a chance to change your mind. You can weigh the visual evidence and decide, that's way too much food for one portion of it, or decide your photo needs some color in the form of bright fruits and vegetables.

Also try this photo diet trick. Make sure you can see the plate in the photo. Leave some space around each food. It makes a prettier picture and helps keep the portions smaller. For more ways to enjoy your food and stay trim, watch all our smart tips, right here.
