Food diary

A food diary can help you keep track of everything you eat and drink from breakfast to dinner, and every snack in between. It can be quite surprising to see how it all adds up over the day. Keeping a food diary shouldn’t make you feel bad about what you eat, instead think of it as a positive guide to helping you understand what foods you are eating and how much.

(3) A food diary can pinpoint success – you can see where you have made and maintain the positive changes.
