The rules of a food diary


Ever tried recording a detailed food diary?

The 10 Rules

  1. You must record everything that you eat that contains carbohydrate and preferable fat content too
  2. You should record an accurate time
  3. All drinks that are not low calorie to be included (no cheating)
  4. Everything that you eat (no exclusions)
  5. Even when you clean out the cake making bowl you have to count that too!
  6. If you are not sure how much carbohydrate you need to weigh your food – be precise – no guessing
  7. Eating out is a nightmare – how do you ask your friend/restaurant ‘How much does that weigh?’ or ‘Did you make that sauce with oil?’ but you need to record! No exclusions
  8. Check every bottle and every label – that’s right read the pack!
  9. Write it all down or record it accurately somewhere – most Apps not useful
  10. A gentle reminder – don’t forget to live at the same time 🙂

Oh and I nearly forgot – keep testing your Blood Glucose if you have Diabetes too…..
