Some of you may have heard of the term Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (severe anxiety after experiencing a traumatic event) but today's post is more lighthearted in intent. It is about what I like to call PTSD: Post Thanksgiving Stress & Dieting. The feast (or feast's if you enjoy leftover's as much as I do) have now ended, and many of you are most likely experiencing post Thanksgiving stress-as in those skinny jeans don't button-with ambitious plans to start your diet tomorrow in order to slim down before Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities.
I wanted to introduce everyone to one of my favorite online dieting tools at The Daily Plate, powered by Livestrong. It is an easy, FREE way to track what you are eating daily and is extremely useful when trying to cut and count calories. The web site has an extensive database of foods and exercises that can be easily entered to track your daily caloric intake. It is also a great place to be inspired, reference healthy recipes, and find new exercises to spice up your routine. It is an amazing resource for all of your PTSD needs. 
All you have to do to get started is set up a profile, enter your height, weight and weight goals and let the program do the calorie counting for you. Just make sure you stay with in your budget and the pounds will melt away!
Good luck!
