Creation of journal 4/30/16


Diet Journal Groundwork
  • I don't care to consume more than 2000 calories per day unless stated otherwise to lose weight.
  • I will go to the refrigerator and be patient enough to write a meal plan for the day or week, which will be realistic so that I won't end up changing my mind during the day.
  •  I will make sure that whenever I write a grocery list, it is healthy and it includes the entire household.
  •  My plan is to follow a realistic diet schedule that is easy to follow.
  •  Determine if I am really hungry in terms of the foods I eat (per meal).
  •  I will write down trigger foods or drink.
  •  Read and write down nutrition labels so that I can track down the specific health contents of my foods.
  •  Be specific; write down times, trigger foods, nutrition, meals, and portions.
  •  I will shorten the grocery list.
  •  Do an inventory of the foods that I will consume for the next day, week, 2 weeks, or month.
  •  I will also write down the number of carbs per meal per day.
