Food journaling isn't just for losing weight (although it helped me shed all my baby weight plus more after Mason was born 3 years ago!). There are great apps now days to track your food and calories, but some of us prefer the old fashioned food journal! So here is a printable one that will fit nicely into your 3-ring binder or just hang on your fridge!! Download HERE or click on the image below.
You can fill this out a number of different ways. For food journaling to be successful with weight loss, we track food & drink portions and calories for each and every thing we put into our mouth. We figure out our calorie "limit" for the day to reach our goal weight, and try not to exceed it. I won't go into all the details in this blog post, but I can speak from experience that the success rate of using a food journal for weight loss is usually high.
OR....if you're using this journal simply as more of a health log to make sure you are getting enough fruits and vegetables or not too much junk food, or to compare how you feel based on what foods you eat, then you might just jot down food and portions.
