Back to the beans and a Food Journal Sample

I was watching the Biggest loser and they mentioned that if you keep a food journal you double your weight loss! SUBHANALLAH! I figured that is what I was doing but I really wasn't. So from now on this is the structure I am following. inshaAllah.

SO after searching the internet I found a sample food journal and I am sharing them with you in the hopes that inshaAllah we all benefit.

Journal Page

It is important to track your daily food consumption, feelings and progress.

MEAL PLAN: Start by planning and journaling what you are going to eat. This will ensure that you are eating smaller, frequent meals. This will help you understand your eating patterns and see how they affect weight loss and maintenance.

FEELINGS: Documenting your feeling can help you realize how your emotions and stress affect your eating patterns.

GOALS: Set both short-term and long-term goals and show them to someone you trust! This will make you more likely to stick to your plan and achieve results!

TIP: Make copies of the blank pages and keep them in a folder. Take before and after pictures to document your progress!

copy paste the code they give you, then come to your blog layout, add a gadget, choose the 3rd option HTML/JavaScript. Paste, place where you want it to go and save.

assalamo alaykom tuttie
how did u lose 11 pounds

.::Tuttie::. said...

mainly drinking massive amounts of water and that is NOT an exaggeration. I am still nursing my son (although I gained most of the weight while nursing) and I cutout junkfood (that I didn't like in the first place).

I leave one day when I eat some junk that way my metabolism doesn't get used to one set.
