If You Want To Eat Healthier - Keep A Food Journal

Updated: Aug 12, 2021

Healthy eating is so important but it really doesn't have to be that difficult! The following quick tip will help you to start making healthier food choices without it feeling completely overwhelming...

Healthy eating doesn't have to mean strict dietary limitations or depriving yourself of all the foods you love. Its about learning how to make healthier choices and switching out unhealthy processed foods with delicious whole foods and feeling better, having more energy and improving your outlook.

Quick tip: Keep a food journal! This is super important, especially at first to help you create healthy eating habits. You will be surprised at what you are actually consuming day in and day out and will start to see how easy it is to change those habits once you start holding yourself accountable. Remember to be honest and write everything down immediately (what time of day and what you were doing at the time), this will help you to see patterns in your eating that are unhealthy. Do this for about a week or two and see what you discover!

Remember a healthy diet is all about balance and replacing unhealthy choices (i.e. processed and high sugar foods) with healthy alternatives. Simplify your choices. Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories, think of your food in terms of color, variety, and freshness. Focus on avoiding packaged or processed foods and opting for more fresh ingredients. Read the labels! Its important to be aware of what's in your food, as manufacturers often hide large amounts of sugar or unhealthy additives in packaged food, even food claiming to be healthy. Remember to have fun with this new way of eating and learn how to rediscover and really enjoy healthy food (it's delicious!). Keep your choices simple and just slowly start to replace certain foods and before you know it you will start to see some results!
