Jainaba Jobarteh: How to Keep a Food Diary

· Jainaba Jobarteh

Jainaba Jobarteh lives and works in Madrid, Spain. She’s a passionate gardener and health-conscious community member, and Jainaba Jobarteh enjoys teaching others how to follow healthy diets and lifestyles.

In a recent interview, Jainaba Jobarteh revealed that one of her favorite weight management and nutrition secrets is keeping a food diary. A food diary is a record of everything you eat and drink throughout the day, and it helps increase awareness of your caloric intake.

The steps below will help you start a food diary of your own so you can take charge of your health:

· Find the Best Medium

Some people keep food diaries written in a lined journal, others keep them in an online diary and others stored in a mobile app. Find the best medium for your diary – whatever you’re most likely to stick to – and use it.

· Don’t Give Up (and Be Honest!)

Food diaries work well for people like Jainaba Jobarteh because they don’t give up. When you miss a day, just start logging again the next day and move on. Likewise, don’t avoid logging your foods just because you overate – be honest with yourself and keep track of what you eat even on “bad” days.
