The Power Of The Food Diary

 

Although you might “already know” exactly what and how much you eat, you might be surprised.

I have about 3 pizzas a year. Not more. Do I plan them? No, not at all. But I became so aware of what I eat that I remember when I have them and with whom.

This wasn’t always the case of course, not when I managed to get my weight 20lb heavier or to about 60kg.

Writing down a short summary will enable you to automatically make changes. It just happens.

You might begin to feel guilty about what you eat, but that’s not necessary. Try to see this food diary as an experiment, a coach, rather than an evil need.

 

EXAMPLE

One of my clients loves to keep track of the meals throughout the day.

I normally ask for 7 days of detailed food journal, but my client wants to send me an email with a summary every evening. Which I love! Very dedicated and getting results.

Client’s eating habits have changed so much in the past 5 months since we’ve been training together, in terms of quality and quantity. Although if I ate like this I’d be hungry every hour, but everyone is different, this is ok for my client.

If you don’t have a coach, eEmail yourself what you eat every day, just like in picture below, and see how your habits will start to gradually change.

Will you do that? Many people ignore such advice thinking it’s not necessary. However, I may not be necessary to hold a food journal, but it will make it easier for you. So it’s up to you if you want the easy or the difficult way.

If not just get on a coaching programme with me – online or offline – and I will receive your emails and support you on the way. Message me or leave a comment below.

Online coaching programme is the Unleash Your Physical Potential through the MTI Academy. So contact me to schedule a free consultation and see if you qualify for this programme.
