Psychological and behavioral strategies can help you lose weight, if they can help you decrease your daily calorie and carohydrate intake. Always remember you absolutely, positively cannot freely feed on protein and fat, and expect to lose weight. You just can’t eat as much as you want. Sorry. Food diaries can help, if you keep them. Patients hate them, and weight loss stops when journaling stops, so I’m not a terrific fan, but they do help. Go to the dollar store and buy a cheap calendar, and write down everything you put in your mouth, each day for a week. Weight yourself daily, and see if journaling helps you. 80% of your calories tend to be eaten the first and last 5 minutes of a meal (especially at restaurants), so beware of the apptizers, bread basket and desserts.
