Healthy Tip of the Day: Keep a Food Journal

23 Jun

Now, I’ve always been one to be a fan of going with the flow, trying to just live every day as simple as possible.

However, when it comes to food, sometimes it is good to have a little more control.

Starting a “food journal” can help you keep track of all the little itty bitty pieces of food you put into your mouth: the good, the bad and even the ugly.

Many people frivolously eat, not realizing that they are packing on far more calories than needed. For example, an average 150 lb woman only needs about 1,500 calories a day to stay energized. However, many women are “overdosing” on food, eating almost twice as much as that.

Simply jotting down your snacks and meals can help you maintain a healthy weight that’s right for YOU. Just carry around a small pad and a pen with you for the day, and you’ll be in control of your diet in the snap of a finger!
