Episode 96: How a Food Journal Can Help You Lose Weight
Oh, my goodness! Just the mere mention of keeping a food journal is enough to throw most of my clients into a tizzy.
How about you? What memories does the thought of writing down what you eat, bring up for you?
Could it be memories of shame and judgment and thinking poorly of yourself?
Remember when you dieted, and you slipped, (of course you slipped!) and you went to write down that slip and ugh! You felt terrible?
No more. I am not saying you must keep a food journal. But if you are stuck in a plateau, and don’t know why your weight is at a certain point, keeping a journal for a few days can be a dose of truth.
And nothing moves you ahead faster than dealing with reality as it is, not as you wish it were, not as you remember it was, nor as you hope it should be.
Reality is what you are truly doing, and eating, and that is giving you the result you have.
Let’s lose the old image of the harsh, punishing food journal and look at a simpler version that will help you play detective in your own life.
