THIS WEEK’S 5X5 HABIT – FOOD JOURNAL
Concept: Sleekgeek 5×5 Habit = a new habit each week to do for 5 minutes or less, 5 times a week.
This week’s habit is FOOD JOURNAL 👇
Keep a food journal of EVERYTHING that you eat today.
This could be as simple as taking a photo with your phone or write it down on a notepad.
Aim to do it meal-by-meal rather than trying to recall it all at the end of the day.
If you want, feel free to take some extra notes about your meal.
Was it planned or unplanned? Were you hungry or just bored? Did you eat more than you needed to? Did you feel rushed or anxious while eating? Could you have made a better choice for your goals or are you happy with what you ate?
Share with us, in the comments of this post on Facebook, a photo of your meals or a description of what you ate in the comments below DAILY to be eligible for the R500 prize!
I suggest using some kind of collage app on your phone to put all of your meals in one photo, or comment with your first photo and then hit reply to your own comment to post the rest of your meals for that day.
The winner will be announced on Monday along with the next 5×5 Habit.
📢 MORE INFO:
People who keep track of what they eat consistently lose more weight than those who don’t.
This is something that has been backed up repeatedly by research and is considered to be a safe and effective weight loss technique.
There are several reasons for this:
Food logs make us more aware of our eating habits.
Food logs keep us honest and accurate about what we eat.
Food logs give us a good “State of the Nation” overview of our eating.
By using a food log, you can create more awareness around what you eat.
Not only does it help you focus on exactly what you are about to eat, but it also creates a pause between when you decide what to eat and when you actually eat it by requiring that you enter the food into your food journal first.
Most of our bad decisions get made in a rush. Very often by just slowing down the eating process, we can make phenomenally better choices with little effort.
