Health Tip: Keeping a Food Diary

Health Tip: Keeping a Food Diary

09/21/11

(HealthDay News) -- Keeping a food diary can help you stick to a healthy diet, develop healthy eating habits and monitor caloric intake, which are important in maintaining a healthy weight.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these tips on what to record in your food diary:

  • Exactly what foods you ate -- don't forget to include any condiments, sauces or other extras.
  • The amount of food that you ate, in either size or volume.
  • What time of day that you ate, and where you were when you ate.
  • What you were doing when you ate, and how you felt when you were eating.
  • Whether you were alone or with someone else.
