Take Stock of Your Eating Habits

FIY - Week 5

By: Ann-Marie Giglio

The next step --- keep track of what you eat. Write it down. Every bite.

These things that you eat are your diet. Not Marie Osmond's or Atkins'. Your diet is simply the food you consume. The stuff you use for fuel. Think of it all as gas for your engine. Your body operates on a diet of energy. What you use to produce that energy is key.

Keep this food diary for the next week. Once you have it, you can begin to analyze it.

Are you getting 5-7 servings of fruit and vegetables every day? Are you drinking 1/2 your weight in ounces of water each day. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds, do you drink about 70 ounces of water each day? Coffee, tea, soft drinks, juices don't count! It's good clean water that our cells need.

What about fat? Are you eating too much? Not enough? Are you confused about carbs?

Keep that food diary for the next week and then we'll talk about how to painlessly make the changes to move you toward your fitness goals.
