How to Keep a Food Diary for Weight Loss: The Do's and Don'ts

If you're looking to lose weight, then you need to start keeping a food diary! In this food diary for weight loss, you'll learn the do's and don'ts of keeping a food diary for weight loss. You'll learn that it's not about counting calories, but about tracking what you eat and how it makes you feel. By following the guidelines in this food diary for weight loss, you'll be on your way to successful weight loss results!

A food diary is one of the first action tasks I get all my clients to do, because it provides a lot of insight into their current eating patterns.

Episode Summary

Many people keep a food diary for counting calories.

However, this does not help with breaking overeating patterns.

Instead, using a food diary for counting calories or carbs will simply create an all-or-nothing mindset, where, as soon as you go over your daily limit, you end up saying "screw it" and binge and planning to start over the next day.

Here are some things you should keep track of instead in your food diary:

  • Food

  • Time of the day

  • Place

  • Hunger and fullness and cravings

  • situations/events

  • feelings and emotions


Don't wait until the end of the day (People tend to underestimate or forget what and how much they've eaten.)

Make use of technology if you don't want to carry around a food journal with you all the time.

In the Stop Binge Eating Program, once we have all this information, we help you build in preventive measures to tackle your own "danger zones" so you can break these unhelpful patterns and finally lose weight .
