What is a 3-day diet journal?
The 3-day diet journal is used to capture a snapshot how you eat in real life. We will use it to figure out what sort of changes we need to make for you to achieve your goals
More about the journal:.
Because we tend to eat differently on the weekends than the weekdays, the journal should cover 3 consecutive days: 2 weekdays and 1 weekend day (Thursday/Friday/Saturday or Sunday/Monday/Tuesday).
You will receive a template that includes columns for what you eat/drink; when you are eating/drinking; and even how you are feeling (this could be mental, emotional, physical).
The more detailed and honest, the better. Remember, there will be zero judgment and total confidentiality.
