I had an extra check book transaction register. I am taking that where ever I go & recording all I eat the first column is the time I eat anything, the next is the date, & where it says description of transaction I put the type of food I ate & the next column I put how much. I put this in a plastic sleeve cover with a pen. On the outside of register I put the date I started doing this Where it says name of Financial Institute I put Eating Healthier for My Future Gain of Living Longer.
