Food Journal Challenge

It can be really hard to abandon old habits, even if we have strong intentions and a desire to change.26

Ever hear the phrase “What you measure, you can manage?”  It’s true- in pretty much every area of life…. and is absolutely true in regards to nutrition.

Keeping a food journal is not only a great exercise, but will help you gain insight into your eating habits and hold you accountable to what you’re putting in your body.

There’s no judgment in a journal, just facts. Once you’ve recorded everything, you can analyze it and make changes for the future.

Keeping a journal may seem tedious at first, but I challenge you to try and take notes about what you eat this week.

Journaling tips:
• Write down what time of day you’re eating (and drinking)
• Make sure to include portion sizes (estimate the best you can)
• Write down the emotions you’re feeling before, during, & after you eat
• Write down EVERYTHING that goes into your mouth- even if it’s just one M&M
You might be surprised about what you’ll learn… and if nothing else, it will make you more aware of the quality and quantity of food that you’re eating.
