Do You Know of Any "Hunger" Journal Tools?

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

I am looking for an Android app or other tool to use assist me in figuring out my emotional eating issues. I'm envisioning something in which I can record when I want to eat, what I am feeling, if I ate or did something else. Since I have my phone with me anyway, I was hoping there might be "an app for that".

I may just use a mini-memo book for a limited time - my engineer husband might even want do some analysis, 'cause he's a "math is fun" kind of guy. :)

I came across previously the idea of the "Apple Test" - asking myself if eating an apple would help what I am feeling.

And I adapted another idea to what I call the BLATH Test - asking myself if I am Bored, Lonely, Anxious/Angry, Tired or Hungry.

Thank you for any assistance or support you can provide! :)

    at work i keep a piece of paper next to my desk and write down when i have a craving and the time. i started doing this before i would grab a snack out of my desk. i found certain times would make me want a snack even id i was not hungry,

    Recovery Record is so helpful for all kinds of concerns. This page talks about eating disorders, but I use it for my routine eating issues, plus any emotional concern. I think it is free.
I can't make the link live, so you'll have to copy and paste it, or look for "Recovery Record" on your app finder.
