Why keep a daily food journal?
Most folks are out of touch with what and how much they actually eat. Many are quite surprised by their eating habits once they start to journal their daily food intake.
Daily food journaling:
- keeps you in touch with the reality of what goes into your mouth
- removes the guess work out of balancing calories, protein, carbohydrates and fats
- takes out the stress of figuring out what to eat - you’ve already made a plan and all you have to do is stick with it
- keeps you accountable for your eating
Is precision really that important?
The mind is a tricky thing. Especially if the mind is addled by addictions,
cravings, misinformation, emotional distress, social pressure, and stress. A
simple ‘little taste’ of this and a ‘bite’ of that add
up and program your body to respond accordingly. An extra stalk of broccoli
will not impact your physique. A few bites of chocolate cake will. One feeds
your body additional nutrients and fiber, the other is going to spike your insulin
and ask your body to burn carbohydrates (as opposed to stored fat) for fuel.
Everything that goes into your mouth programs your body for a specific response.
The human body is not unlike any other machine. It runs best on clean fuel.
Precision in your eating is of utmost importance when you want to change your
body, because we will monitor those responses from the body and train the
body to burn stored fat for fuel, or build muscle, or run more efficiently,
or maintain current status - whatever your goals are in your Lifestyle Transformation.
Sure there’s a big difference between eating a whole chocolate cake, and
eating a few bites. But those few bites are still data going into your body
that will require a response. And all the little things add up. That is where
precision comes in. The idea is to get your body where you want it as quickly
as possible by utilizing precision.
If you are addicted to any foods, and many of us are, then precision is even
more important. ONE BITE of an addictive food can set off a cycle of cravings
and ‘one bite’ series that will sabotage what you think are your
best efforts. (The most common addictive foods? Sugar and refined flour products.)
Remember, everything that you eat today will impact your health in the future.
Food journaling with a tool as powerful as Genesis will give you the precision,
accountability, and accuracy that you need for your Lifestyle Transformation.
