#TuesdayTip: write it down 📝
Whenever my clients are struggling with their nutrition, whether it’s what they’re eating or how they’re eating, I encourage them to keep a food journal for at least a week. Write down EVERYTHING they eat/drink and include the time, where they were (work, home, restaurant, etc.), mood and even who they were with.
Keeping a detailed journal highlights & pinpoints habits and trends that may be sabotaging your goals such as:
🔻friends who encourage poor habits not in line with your goals
🔻a certain time of day where you tend to fall off track
🔻mindless mini snacks that add up throughout the day
🔻lack of water (thirst and hunger send the same signal to the brain so sometimes we eat when we really just need water.)
These are some of the things that can be identified when keeping a food journal and this tool will help you target the issues that are keeping you from being your best!
