The Food Journal
Food journaling is all about awareness and is one of the best assessments you can use.
There is no right or wrong with food journaling and you get to choose your focus.
You can use food journaling to record what you're eating, how much you're eating, how certain foods make you feel, and even why you're eating.
There are more digital and analog food journaling tools than we can count but like everything else, find a way to make this easy for yourself.
The practice of food journaling should be easy so find a way to make it easy enough for you to do.
