Try think­ing back. Can you re­mem­ber ev­ery­thing you ate yes­ter­day? In a busy life, it’s easy to lose track and end up eat­ing food with­out think­ing. A bis­cuit while con­tem­plat­ing your e-mails; a hand­ful of nuts when you get home from work; din­ner in front of the TV—so of­ten we fill our mouths with­out think­ing.

Write down ev­ery­thing you con­sume, in­clud­ing soft drinks, cof­fee and al­co­hol, along with the time of the meal or snack. Be truth­ful and try not to change the way you eat just be­cause you’re keep­ing a di­ary. The sim­ple act of record­ing your meal cre­ates aware­ness. It high­lights your pat­terns, the gaps be­tween meals, and your dan­ger times of the day. All of which will help you plan healthier eat­ing.
