Secrets of Success

Track Before Eating



As I pack my breakfast, lunch, and snacks for the day I record them all in my food diary. That way I don't have to worry about tracking during the day and can leave my journal at home. If I don't eat something I packed, I cross it off later on. If I eat something different I jot it on a post-it and stick it in my pocket so I don't forget to record it. Then I only need to track dinner at night and add up my daily totals. I find this to be a great time saver. emoticon
