(Relaxnews) - If you're hoping to lose weight, a new study announced July 13 suggests that keeping an honest food journal can help you eat less.

Researchers from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle studied the eating behaviors of 123 overweight, previously inactive women for a year.

Women who kept food journals and consistently wrote down the foods they ate lost about six pounds (2.73 kilos) more than women who didn't.
