Secrets of Success

Food Journaling



I journal everything I eat (even a piece of gum) & drink. I track calories, carbs, fat g., protein, dietary fiber and sodium & tally it up every night. Than at the end of the week I tally up all of my weeks totals and find the average. Sometimes you'll have 1 bad day but within the entire week you can still be right on target. It has helped me a ton!

  • I think this is an excellent way to think about it. Usually if I have one bad day, i feel the whole week is ruined! If I look at it by averages, it might not be so bad! thanks for the idea - by BOTT77
