One of the first steps to eating well is being aware of what you are putting into your mouth.
I have people telling me that they only eat 3 meals a day or “very little” but they still cannot seem to lose/maintain their weight. There are many aspects when it comes to weight loss but we’ll focus on the food that you eat.
I am usually very curious as to what exactly are they eating in 24 hours. I get them to list out every food/drink that they consume.
From there, these are the 3 most common scenarios:
- They actually stick to 3 meals a day BUT those 3 meals are loaded with sugar, saturated fat and trans-fat (Fried foods, oily foods, sweets, dessert, cakes, ice cream, canned drinks etc)
- They eat 3 relatively small and healthy meals BUT snack continuously on the foods mentioned above.
- They do not eat ENOUGH.
So, before you start eating right or make any changes to your current eating patterns, you have to find out what is wrong with it. The first thing you can do is to start a personal Food Journal. Write down every time you take a bite. Yes, that one bite of Snickers count!
The Challenge: Start a food journal today and eat as you normally would. That way, you can monitor your current eating patterns!
I have a Food Journal template that I use. Drop me an email or leave a comment if you want it! FOR FREE! 🙂
