Most people who keep a food diary note what is eaten after it is eaten. By that time, any poor decisions would already have been made. Instead, try keeping a proactive food diary.
Start your day by writing down exactly what you plan to eat, and then stick with it. While it’s ok to allow yourself a treat here and there, make sure it’s one you “planned for” in your diary that won’t throw off your entire day’s meals. The old adage is that you fail to plan you are planning to fail.
Eat normal size meals so that you feel satisfied and are less likely to overindulge on sweets or stuffing.
Fats are good
Examples of good fats are olives, olive oil, coconut oil, butter and nuts — macadamia nuts are particularly useful as they are high in fat and low in protein.
Its a process
Highly processed foods are designed to appeal to your primal drive for calories, fat, sugar, and salt. As you consume more of these highly processed products, your brain will become conditioned to crave these unhealthy foods, making it harder to resist them.
