Are you stuck making progress with your fat loss goal? Do you ever stop and take stock of how much you’re eating or how many calories you consume a day? A week?
Have you ever kept a food diary? If not I would strongly recommend it for a week.
Individuals who keep a food diary are able to see just how many calories they are truly consuming each day. A cookie here, a mocha latte there and the calories and hidden fats and sugars soon begin to pile up, in short it can quickly identify poor eating habits.
Someone who is aiming to be in calorie deficit or ‘going low carb’ or even ‘clean eating’ (to elicit fat loss) may soon realise that they’re straying off course. They can look at the food diary and look at what needs to be eliminated to meet their goals.
A food diary in itself can serve as a strong motivational tool to keep you on track and ensure you eat what you’re supposed to be eating. Also you can take it to a qualified nutritionist or trainer and have it analysed for you or even submit one to your current trainer frequently to ensure you are on the right path.
