I incorporated food journaling into my fitness routine February 1st. My goal with this is to teach myself how much 1200-1500 healthful calories a day is. After having eaten a pretty consistent diet of whole foods in January I was still curious as to whether or not I was in the recommended daily range. 21 days into my journaling I am a much wiser and more calorie and health conscience person.
Portion control is my friend :)
I have learned that some foods like corn that I would have naturally considered a low calorie vegetable is actually a moderately high-calorie grain (90 calories per 1/3 cob). Through my journaling and research I am much more conscience about what types of foods I am putting into my body and I feel so much better knowing for certain I am keeping within my daily range. I have also cut most all processed and chemically laden foods from my diet. No more "fat free" or "low fat" sh*t storm foods for me either!
