Journaling is a great way to keep a record of your life and events. It helps you look back and reflect on what you have accomplished and what still needs to be accomplished. This philosophy is the same with a food journal. A food journal helps you keep track of what you are putting in your body so that you can reflect for necessary motivation or necessary course correction.
When I talk about keeping a food journal I am not talking about the ones where you put down every calorie, fat gram, fiber intake, sodium consumed. I tried this and believe me it is time consuming and exhausting.
First, I do not keep track of all the calories, fats, fibers, etc. that I put in my body. I have a protocol of no sugar, no flour. Pretty easy huh? I keep track of just the foods I am eating and the amounts. Another thing I do is write out what I will eat, before I eat it. This way I don’t have to worry about anything else but what is already planned. No fuss, no drama.
If you are into making 2018 a year of results and successes keep a food journal and see what it will do for you. If you want some accountability I invite you to schedule a mini coaching session with me, calendly.com/livepositivelc, and see what your year can really be!!
