A new ‘diet’ has hit Twitter. ‘Tweet what you eat’ is not so much a diet, more an online food diary with calorie calculator that people can use via Twitter. The combination of accurately recording your food intake coupled with displaying it for chosen friends seems to be sufficient to enable people to lose weight, i.e. ensuring you know what you’ve eaten & recording it on the go via Twitter & even getting encouragement/discouragement from friends & family seems to allow those watching their weight to shed the pounds.
Twitter-phile Stephen Fry is reported to have lost 6 stone (38kg or 84lbs) in 6 months, whilst the original comedic Little Britain Fat Fighter, Matt Lucas, has lost 1/2 stone in a fortnight.
Personally not a big fan of fad diets, think it’s far healthier to enjoy what you eat & attempt to burn it off with exercise if able, but using mobile technology like Twitter in this format seems a good way to record your diet & share the process with family & friends.
