Keeping a Food Diary

Sunday, November 22, 2009

I know, I one likes homework, but I truly believe that keeping a food diary is really important.
Example...what did you eat for breakfast last Monday morning? Fuzzy?

Ever been dieting and had a surprise gain? How about a surprise big loss? Keeping a food diary gives you the opportunity to study yourself.

If you can see what you ate the week of your surprise gain, you can see if there is a certain food that your body doesn't approve of. Too much sugar, not enough protein...etc.

So get yourself a super cute notebook to keep right next to your favorite chair. Keep a backup in your purse. You can use your mobile phone too...but there is something so 9th grade about keeping an actual "pen to paper" physical record in a cute spiral bound notebook. You can sit back and look over your progress, track your weigh-ins. Do your "equations" in it.
I <3 style="font-style: italic;">start. It's a temporary way to get some pounds off in the beginning without the struggle.

Also, don't get hung up on "bad" foods. What matters is eating foods that will fill you up, stabilize your blood sugar and keep you satisfied for hours. And above all, calories are calories. It's plain old physics...calories in calories out.
