Food journals are a good idea for several reasons. If you think you might have certain food allergies they can be great for helping to pinpoint when the unpleasant symptoms occur and what food you may have eaten to trigger them. They can also be helpful if you are trying to eat healthier and/or change how you eat: no one wants to write down at the end of the day that they ate three donuts, half a pizza, and a sleeve of Oreo Cookies. 😉 In conjunction with the healthier eating benefit of food journaling, you can also use it for the purpose of losing weight – you can calculate your total calorie intake at the end of each day which will allow you to look back and see where changes need to be made in order to make the most of all your weight loss efforts.
