Tracking what you eat and when you eat it is a great way to help improve eating patterns. Increased awareness leads to more informed decision making and less mindless snacking, both of which are great news for health.
In order to facilitate this process for your clients, I've created a brand new printable food diary handout.
This handout includes...
- A place for participants to record their name and the date. These features are especially nice if you're printing multiple copies for longer-term or group tracking.
- A spot for people to write down their health goals. You'd be surprised at how helpful this is for maintaining motivation and boosting accountability.
- Space to record what that person ate for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and any snacks.
- A handy MyPlate checklist to encourage matching MyPlate's portion and proportion advice.
Check out the handout below! How will you use your copy?
