It is important when you are focusing on becoming a healthy balanced person to focus on working out and the types of food you are eating. The types of food and the amounts you eat are in direct correlation on how well your body performs before, during and after a workout.
I suggest you keep a food journal today. Write down what you eat, how much you eat, what time and why you ate the food. If the journaling goes well today, try to keep your food journal for a week or two -- it will help you see where your health habits may need improvement. It's too easy to forget about the little snacks and nibbles that happen throughout the day. A handful here and handful there can add up to hundreds of extra calories you don't even realize you're eating.
You don't need a fancy journal to keep track of your food intake for a day. Grab a piece of scratch paper, use your day planner, or find an old notebook that you can tote around for a day.
