The clinic offers these suggestions for starting a food diary:
- Use a notebook, computer or other electronic device.
- Write down what you eat and drink as you consume each item, as well as the date and time. Be as specific as you can.
- Designate columns for when you ate, what you ate, how you felt and how much exercise you got that day.
- Review your journal and analyze your eating habits. Look for scenarios (such as eating out) or emotions that trigger unhealthy choices.
