While I don’t love tracking my food intake, it can be a very powerful tool for troubleshooting. In fact, in my Facebook group, if you complain of a stall or of not losing weight quickly enough, you’re likely to be asked for a 5-day food journal.
In my new book, Keto Living Day by Day, I included a form for logging food because it isn’t just about the food. Often it’s helpful to record what time you’ve eaten, what you ate, the macros (carbs, protein, fat), your hunger level before eating, and your satisfaction after the meal. As a general rule of thumb, if a meal doesn’t keep me full for at least 4 to 6 hours, than that meal wasn’t a great option for me in terms of macros. I may have needed more fat or protein or fewer carbohydrates. In the book, I explain how this form might become a useful tool as you adopt a ketogenic lifestyle.
If you’re having trouble managing hunger or wondering if your meals are ‘right’ for you, this food journal may also be helpful to you.
