How to keep a food Journal:
Write down what you eat on three weekdays and one weekend day, using the following guidelines:
Record everything you eat and drink immediately.
Note what you're doing while you're eating―driving, watching TV, etc.
Describe how you felt while you ate: angry, sad, happy, nervous, starving, bored?
Be honest. It's a journal, not a newsletter, and no one has to see it but you.
At the end of each day, examine how your emotions affected your eating.
