It’s important to keep track of the steps you’re taking toward nourishing your body with a healthier diet. By keeping track of what you’re eating for a couple of weeks, you may be able to identify patterns that are helping (or hurting) your goals for nourishing your body in a healthy way.
Many tools are available to help you stay on track. Chose the tool that’s right for you.
Pen and Paper:
Don’t get too bogged down in the details. We all have those days where we get to the end of the day and realize we haven’t eaten the kinds of foods or the portions we know we need
to lead the healthy life we want. By keeping track of what you eat over a couple of weeks, you may be able to get a better sense of your more general pattern of eating and identify areas of success (like eating lots of veggies), as well as places where you could make some improvements (like when you’re likely to mindlessly munch and fill up on empty calories).Think of tracking the foods you eat as a tool to help you reach your goals of nourishing your body in a healthy way.
