If you bite it, write it!
If you drink it, ink it!

Research shows that for people interested in losing weight, keeping a journal can be a very effective tool to help change behaviour.

Tips for keeping a food diary: 

  • Write everything down, no matter how small
  • Do it now – don’t rely on your memory at the end of the day or better still do it in advance
  • Be specific – record your food and drink exactly how you eat it
  • Record weights of food – remember to measure
  • Be honest
  • Record times you eat
  • Where are you eating?
  • What else are you doing while eating?
  • Who are you eating with?
  • How are you feeling as you’re eating?
  • Consistency is key – all 7 days a week
  • Count those optional calories!
