Keep a Food Journal
Keeping a food journal can increase awareness of how, what, and why you eat. Rachel said that by observing these patterns, you can make changes to promote balanced meal planning and support overall weight management. Many health apps on smartphones have food-tracking features like MyFitnessPal, which makes it easy to log your food. Some even allow you to take pictures of your meals, like the YouAte app. Many apps are also interactive, offering fun social features that allow you to share your information as part of an online community where you can support one another.
Keeping a food journal won't work unless you're honest and accurate, so measure your food, track every lick, bite, and taste, and you can even share your food journal with a friend to help you stay accountable.
