We take the guesswork out of weight loss.
Introduction
To fully understand our philosophy, you must first understand what we are not.  MyFoodDiary is not a crash diet; we do not promise that you will lose weight at unsafe rates; and we do not force you to adopt a completely new menu of foods.  These methods of weight loss have proven to be ineffective in the long run, and they can even cause lasting damage to your body.

In contrast, MyFoodDiary relies on scientifically-proven methods for permanent weight loss.  It works because, unlike other methods, we do not try to completely replace your entire lifestyle.  Instead, our tools give you the knowledge to tweak your existing lifestyle into a healthy one.
