Clients often ask me if I do the same things I suggest to them, whether it be a lifestyle decision, strength move or stretch.
The answer is...yes.
About keeping a food journal...absolutely, positively, yes; I keep track of what I eat. It has been proven over and over again, over many, many years, that food journaling equals diet success long term. Who wouldn't like that?
Believe it or not, I am human. I have a family, pets, career, hobbies, etc., just like everyone else. There is only one difference, I made a perpetual diet / food log for myself which is compact enough to be discreet and much easier to use than a tablet and pen. I chart my progress, which lets me know what I am lacking, before the end of the day, to give me enough time to make up the difference with smart corrections.
Guess what I discovered? I naturally prefer water, fruit, grains and dairy, in that order. Now what? I am aware of this, so, I will reach for one less fruit, opting for the vegetable serving. Add to that a green leaf and a healthy protein like chicken and I am doing better. I feel lighter with more energy and ambition; you're welcome Jake and Rufus (woman's best friends who love their walks) and Vivi (woman's other best friend who loves attention).
This item works so well for me, that I make one for each client...most choose to journal their food intake this way for personal diet success.
Okay, time to go...take care of my best friends who are waiting oh so patiently.
Until next time, good luck with your journals.
